Correct idiom :
Not only.. But also
Not only.. But
Not just.. But also


C and D remains

One to the other : this is wrong
Also read the sentence skipping

Not only... But also

So C reads - - - >
It is a special feature of cell aggregation in the developing nervous system that in most regions of the brain the cells adopting some preferential orientation

Does not make sense. So answer is D

Agree that 'D' is the correct answer. However the the error in the sentence is not in parallelism but the error is an idiomatic error (Idioms=phrases/proverbs).
Nonnatives (and especially Indians) tend to have errors in answering such questions.


Thanks

Actually, the OP might be referring to parallelism between X and Y in the construction - - >
Not only X but also Y

(A) to one another and also adopt - not only...but also is missing

(B) one to the other, and also they adopt - not only...but also is missing

(C) one to the other, but also adopting - not only adhere ...but also adopting. Should be adopt

(D) to one another but also adopt - Correct.

(E) to each other, also adopting - not only...but also is missing. Should be adopt

Not only - but also. Only C and D have this idiom.
D maintains parallelism
