Correct idiomatic usage is - X as well as Y

None but (C) follows the same , hence correct answer must be (C)

A semi-colon must serve to connect two complete sentences.
In answer choice A and B, the semi-colon is not followed by a complete sentence.
So, Eliminate answer choice A and B.
In choice D, “ For Ryo ……..for him” is the wrong usage. Hence, D is out. In E, “Success was largely a matter of him” doesn’t make any sense. So, we could eliminate E. Choice C has the perfect structure. Hence, C is the answer.
