B for the correct idiom and parallelism. Look at how the gerunds are used: It's all the same and parallel.

IMO B.

We use between only when comparing two things and among when there are more than two things.
Hence B and D remain.
B is parallel --> explaining, revaling, promoting
D is not paralle -------> explaining, revelation, promote
