The correct modifier of " Bela Bartok's musics" should be "it" ---> cross B and D.
D and E are wrong coz we're comparing someone's musics to another's .
there's no need to use " is" in C.
A is final choice.

B - Music cannot be a "he"
C - Don't need is after Stravinsky's / Schonberg's
D & E - Compares Bartok's music to a person (Schonberg)

B and D are out since "he" has not clear referant.

C doesn't make any sense. E does not properly compare to Bartok's music.

Therefore, I choose A.

A is correct. Its parallel, and also used the correct pronoun 'it' refering to Bartok's music.
