I think that the answer is D.

A, B - eliminated because of the use of past tense

It was a tough choice between C, D & E.

C - 'in both X and in Y'
D - 'both in X and in Y'
E - 'both in X and Y'

D sounded the best to me because of its parallel structure.

Only D has the right tense and the right structure.

The correct parallel structure is either

both in X and in Y

or

in both X and Y.

E is my answer

Carried interest is so there are should be used. The VT split is followed by a pronoun both which refers to noun phrase. The key here (I feel) is and how—which is used to emphasize the preceding idea i.e size, how is size calculated.

split both in the size and how it is calculated and accrued…….
