not only must follow but also!!- idiom!

A. it not only hastens wrinkling of the skin, and it also apparently interferes- idiom error
B. it not only hastens the wrinkling of the skin, but it also appears that it interferes--- it can be placed in the following ways to maintain parallelism : it not only X but also Y or not only it X but also it Y- -, it not only X but it also Y (wrong construction)!
C. not only does it hasten the wrinkling of the skin as it also apparently interferes- idiom error
D. not only does it hasten the wrinkling of the skin, but it also appears to interfere- Correct!
E. not only is wrinkling of the skin hastened, but it appears to interfere- idiom error

Smoking is singular, should'nt it be hastens instead of hasten?
