Meaning : Prime minister and her staff ended up with pessimistic view for the future and also about her party loosing on some issues.

Here Prime minister and her staff act as subject and their actions need to be in parallel.. Here we can observe not only..but also idiom.

not only x . . . but also y, where x and y are parallel.

Only option E has proper idiom.

Between D and E. Since verb in both predicates apply to the same subject, the subject might not have to be restated. IMO E

A & D can be straight away ruled out as it repeats end.... end. B/W B,C & E, choose E because of idiom "not only.....but also".

I am not getting why option e is right ??
Not only X but also Y , here X is a phrase and Y is a clause .
