Both X and Y is the correct structure. A and D are out.

C introduces 'these'. 'THese' has to be followed by some noun. But none follows 'these'. So option C is out.

Option E has "that includes"...Here 'that' refers to the 'types' and So plural 'include' is preferred. Also 'Both X and Y" rule is violated. X has 'from Indian' but Y has only ' European'. 'Both Indian and European' is the correct construction.

B is the correct answer.
