The only answer choice that has a correct parallel expression is answer choice D (not because they are significant perpetrators of suburban crime but because they [...]).
Therefore, (D) should be the correct answer.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



This is a question of parallel structure. Because you have ‘but because’ not underlined, you need a parallel form using the word because. The correct idiom not because x, but because y appears in two answers: D and E. Now you have to go to the second mistake in parallel structure. Not because they are x, but because they are y. Choice E does not have this structure. Choice D is the correct answer.
