A. not only with the Academy of Sciences and the scientific community of his day, but also with engineers who used the Newtonian theory
CORRECT

B. opposing the Academy of Sciences and the scientific community of his day, and also the engineers who used the Newtonian theory
Use of OPPOSING as a modifier changes the original intent. Moreover, Use of AND doesn't highlight contradiction. Hence Incorrect.

C. not only in opposition to the Academy of Sciences and the scientific community of his day,but with engineers who used the Newtonian theory
Correct Idiomatic expression is NOT ONLY WITH. Correct parallel market is NOT ONLY X, BUT ALSO Y. Moreover, use of OPPOSITION leads to Redundancy. Hence Incorrect.

D. not only with the Academy of Sciences and the scientific community of his day,but with engineers who used the Newtonian theory
Correct parallel market is NOT ONLY X, BUT ALSO Y. Hence Incorrect.

E. opposing not only Academy of Sciences and the scientific community of his day,but the engineers who used the Newtonian theory
Use of OPPOSITION leads to Redundancy Correct parallel market is NOT ONLY X, BUT ALSO Y. Hence Incorrect.

Not Only X , but also Y is the correct idiomatic usage, none of the options except (A) presents the same, hence answer must be (A)

I think it will be A.Because option A uses the idiom "not only but also".

Not only X but also Y
The parallelism is correct in A
