We do not need both in the answer choices.Both actually changes the meaning.We use both to refer to two things or people together:

Both those chairs are occupied.(The two chairs are occupied.)

But both can also refers to the subject or object of a clause

In the question both was as the object pronoun and wrongly modifying two hundred dance pieces.

So A,B and E are out.

Between C and D ,C doesn't have any verb.

So D is the right answer.

Because 'two hundred dance pieces' gets modified here.

B changes the meaning ...it says the works inuenced both by a and b.

D says it correctly..

Not an expert. But I think B is wrong because of lack of parallelism with "both". Correct version of B would be :
Martha Graham, the American modern dancer and choreographer, created almost two hundred dance pieces that were influenced both by the works of Armenian theatre director Rouben Mamoulian and by the works of Russian-born operatic tenor and stage director Vladimir Rosing; however, the themes she explored were quite different from those of her contemporaries.
