I would go with E.
Because in A there is repetition of Apple's and Apple. Whereas E eliminates that by providing a pronoun 'its '.
Its- refers to Apple's.

From the original sentence, we know that the new technology in Pokémon Go still remains, so we refer perfect present here. Eliminate B, C and D.

correct idiom is "neither X nor Y", so B and C is wrong.

The verb must agree with Y, so in E, "its competitors" must go with "have", not "has". Eliminate E.

A is correct.

B C D has wrong usage of neither..nor idiom.

Amongst A and E, neither...nor construction takes up the No. of the Verb same as to the closest Noun...'has' should match with a singular Noun. A has it. A correct.

A is correct.

B and C have 'neither...nor' idiom issue.

'Has piqued' is the correct tense.

In E, 'Its competitors' is confusing, whether 'its' refer to Pokemon or Apple.

A is clear and best answer.

From the original sentence, we know that the new technology in Pokémon Go still remains, so we refer perfect simple here. Eliminate B, C and D.

correct idiom is "neither X nor Y", so B and C is wrong.

The verb must agree with Y, so in E, "its competitors" must go with "have", not "has". Eliminate E.

A is correct.


Awesome question,
Initially I chose E, but after reading your explanation , understand why it should be A.
Competitors does not agree with the verb " has " hence E is wrong.
