IMO Both B

1st one requires as hence DE are out. Between ABC B is the most logical and correct tenses comparison.
In the 2nd one I have my reservations about "on the basis of avoidance........." hence I will go with B.

I would go B & E. Not sure about B or E for the second one, but B sounds awkward to me.
