e. Although Balzac’s frantic pace, shortcomings of literary styles, and tendency towards melodrama deny Balzac

The crux of the sentence is that the certain literary style of Balzac denied him admission to the highest rank of world's greatest novelists.

A is absolutely ridiculous as " of Balzac is not correct ", what does him refer to .There is also meaning error as well .
B The attributes of Balzac's writing are plural so we have to use plural verb " have "
C "and tendency that he was overly melodramatic has denied him" is wrong as the use of that is not correct he was not melodramatic his writing was.
D Again the attributes are plural so we need plural verb , there is change in meaning as well in"shortcomings that shows in his writings"
E Correct
