Patience Lovell Wright, whose traveling waxworks exhibit preceded Madame Tussaud’s work by 30 years, became well known as much because of having an eccentric personality as for having skillfully rendered popular public figures in wax.

I think no 5 is answers because of correct use of idiom -as well X as Y. X and Y are parallel.

Options 1,2,3 are wrong because they use - well known an much....becasue..., is too wordy. And in option 4, two parts are not parallel.

I pick #5
