right side starts with "...from"

answer E, parallelism

costs associated with and costs associated from improving are not parallel
in E
costs arising from maintaining and costs arising from improving

"Arising from" is the correct phrase, but the sentence must also be parallel. So, option E is our best bet.

A) cost associated with
B) costs associated from
C) costs associated with
D) cost arising from
E) costs arising from

from maintaining... and from continuously improving arre parallel

that leaves us with choice B ,D an E

arising from is more idiomatic than associated from... and also costs should be plural

so choice E is the best

Tricky one. Cost should be plural "costs" because of two noun phrases: maintaining and improving. Cross off A and D
Because of parallelism E stands.
