Whereby" is an adverb so it won't work as a conjunction or as a relative pronoun.
"Viewed as" seems to be the correct idiom
"Both in x and in y" is the proper idiom and correctly used

IMO B

'view as' is the right idiom. A and C are out.

'Both X and Y' is correct idiom. E is out.

'in which' correctly modifies 'discipline' in option B. And hence is the right answer.

“Both in X and in Y” is the correct idiom. So, we can eliminate A, C and E on this ground.
“and to study” here refers to “painting” and not “intellectual discipline”. So, D is eliminated.
Hence, B is the answer.

NandishSS, POE is explained below

Idiom: Both X and Y ===> both in theory and in practice
Idiom: View A as B ===> viewed painting as an intellectual discipline

Quote:
A) both in theory and also practice, to be an intellectual discipline whereby the study of

"in theory" is not parallel with "also practice"
"and also" is redundant
viewed painting to be intellectual discipline (Viewed A to be B is WRONG USAGE)
Eliminate A

Quote:
B) both in theory and in practice, as an intellectual discipline in which the study of

"in theory" is parallel with "in practice"
viewed painting as an intellectual discipline
Correct Answer Option B.

Quote:
C) both in theory and practice, to be an intellectual discipline in which to study

"in theory" is not parallel with "practice"
viewed painting to be intellectual discipline (Viewed A to be B is WRONG USAGE)
Eliminate C

Quote:
D) in both theory and in practice, as an intellectual discipline, and to study

"in both theory and in practice" ==> Placement of "in" is not parallel.
Eliminate D

Quote:
E) in both theory as well as practice, as an intellectual discipline in which studying

both theory as well as practice (Both X as well as Y is WRONG USAGE)
Eliminate E
