Striaght fight between B and E. A,C and D lacks parallelism.
I'll take B. 'as well know...as' in E doesn't seem right...

Agree that it's between B and E.

The problem with B is "as much for having" .... "as for skilful renderings" - I think "as much" and "as" should be followed by similar constructions.

I go for E.

Shortlisted B and E

I would vote for B, cuz E seems to change the original meaning, on the second thought E is more clear. My guess is that clarity is the main reason for E. B is also parellel, jus does not have "her"

"As well known" is much better than "Well known as much".
Choice D- "having" is not correct.
Choice E it is.
