Neither the prepositional phrase ‘rather than’ nor ‘instead of’ is part of the choices in the issue. Only rather and instead are the issues. Hence, I feel there is no need to confuse with unmentioned choices here. . The thing to note is that that an independent but somewhat related clause should follow a semicolon.

Choices A and B fall out because of the redundant use of ‘but rather’ and ‘but instead’. Among the adverbs -instead and rather - and the conjunction ‘but, IMO, ‘instead’ fits into the groove better because of the precise meaning of “in that place” which is better than mere contrast markers such as ‘rather and but’
