will go with D ..
A- among is wrong
B- not parallel -- molding --adopt
C-among is wrong
D-correct
E-adapt to is correct idiom.

[quote="AmeliaLuu"]I think it's D. you can easily cross A & C ( check the difference btw among and between). then we have "adopt" is a kind of word choice problem. Between E and D, as we only hv the structure of adapt X to Y so the answer is D

The distinction is between 2 groups, so any option with among is OUT.
A,C are gone.
B - 'Molding... purposes' becomes a modifier modifying seek. 1) it breaks parallel structure and 2) it changes the meaning.

B/W D & E.
'Adapt to' is better than 'Adapt with' as the idiom is Adapt X to Y, or X adapts to Y.

For me, D is the answer.

distinction between
A & C are out.
between those who X and those who Y
need to maintain parallelism...
only D is perfect.
