No, E cannot be the answer.

OA answer mentioned is correct.

A and have improved farming techniques in the hinterland --> Implying the years have improved farming techniques. Incorrect. Also, Parallelism Error.
B and improved farming techniques to the hinterland --> Maintains Paralellism and conveys the correct meaning.
C and in the hinterland farming techniques have improved --> Parallelism Error
D and, in the hinterland, farming techniques that are improved --> Parallelism Error
E and farming techniques have been improved in the hinterland --> Parallelism Error

OK...after reading more closely I got it..

Meaning : As per this sentence, there are three things that got after independence : increased literacy, new roads, and improved farming techniques.

The above three things have to be in list i.e. X,Y and Z is the list and all of them have to be in the same from.. and there should be comma preceding before the last item.

So B makes sense...I thought it's an independent clause after comma...

Got confused with option B.

I thought that improved is acting as a verb in past tense form but it is not a verb here but an adjective.

All others don't maintain parallelism.

For option D, it is noun phrase || noun phrase || noun phrase

but the third phrase => farming techniques that are improved -- This is awkward and not precise. The phrase improved farming techniques is clean.

Thoughts?
