Choice is E

Step 1 'Partly' in the second part will say out loud that ' partly ' should be in the frist part. Eliminate A & B

Step 2 C & D passive voice- Eliminate

Remaining E -Contains infinitives in the first part and the second part 'to acquire' and 'to provide' establishes prallelism:- confim choice E
