"C" is best I believe.....not X but Y...only "C" is ||...also D and E uses "most risks the greater chance" which doesn't make sense.

One more for C
Other than ||ism, A & B can be eliminated for the use of 'greater chance', 'risk' is a better word to use when referring to something like this.

also go with C. however, i do not like "the one..." but to make the sentence parallel C is the only choice.

I would have to disagree with the OA.
IMO, risk & greater chance are redundant in D & E
One would normally use 'risk' to indicate something unfavorable and use 'chance' to indicate something favorable.

If you get a 7xx in GMAT you have a greater chance of getting into a decent college. - you would not say risk getting into a decent college

If you travel without headlights you risk getting into an accident.

Does the OA have to do something with idiomatic correctness. Nor sounds more appropriate.

I agree with the OA. Not...nor... is a negative combination used similiarly to neither...nor...

late but i am not shocked., I was aiming for D as well. C is very awkward though misleading with the proper use of "neither ...nor".
But not that nor does not always have to be preceeded by neither.
