It was nearly impossible to diagnose the girl’s illness even after three hospitalizations, several months of therapy, and a near mental breakdown because no one medical professional – neither her therapist nor her doctors – were able to see the full scope of her symptoms.
(A) neither her therapist nor her doctors – were able to see
(B) not even her therapist nor her doctors – were able to see
(C) including her therapist and her doctors – were able to see
(D) not even her therapist nor her doctors – was able to see
(E) neither her therapist nor her doctors – was able to see

I got the answer as A , But in the answer bank the correct answer given is E.

use spoiler while posting answers and underline the required part in SC question.

'No one medical professional' is a singular subject, and requires singular verb 'was'.

Is it that "not even cannot" be used with "nor"?

Well prepared question

The subject of the sentence is "no one medical professional". "neither ... nor" part just modifies the professional.
