C.by a tendency of generalizing from the cases which are more familiar of
D.by its tendency to generalize from the more familiar cases, those of
E. by a tendency to generalize from the more familiar cases of

First parallelism "caused by (...) and by".
Second "its" in D has no reference (what does it refer to?)
Third in C "of generalizing" is awkward and the last part is wordy and unclear.
IMO E

Waiting for OA... (and nice question,+1K)

I too thought of E first. . But I am having second thoughts. . Since 'generalising' is better than 'to generalize' for this question in my opinion. So maybe its B.. expert opinion needee. :)

In B the use of "through" is wrong: " distorted by X and through Y" violates parallelism.
