we need seemingly (an adverb) to describe noun. So A, B and C are out.

D is parallel and concise.

E is out. It is wordy, uses 'accomodation for what' I think this is wrong.

I do not think adverb describes a noun.

'D' for being parallel.

I think usage of 'believing is not parallel

(A) believing it a seeming permanent accommodation rather than a temporary expedient for what many observers thought was - need 'to be' after 'it'.WRONG.

(B) believing it a seeming permanent accommodation instead of a temporary expedient for what many observers thought was - need 'to be' after 'it'.WRONG.

(C) believing that it was not a temporary expedient but a seeming permanent accommodation to what many observers thought of as - 'of' is extra

(D) not as a temporary expedient but as a seemingly permanent accommodation to what many observers thought was - parallel, consise. CORRECT

(E) not as a temporary expedient but believing it a seemingly permanent accommodation for what many observers thought - not parallel. WRONG

A, B and C all misuse seeming. E is not parallel.

I like D
