+1 for E

Idiom used: As much as
As much X as Y. X and Y must be parallel

(A) than by their disregard for authority

(B) rather than by their disregard for authority

(C) than by disregarding authority

(D) as by their disregard for authority

(E) as by disregarding authority --> Correct idiom usage. By wearing is parallel to by disregarding

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



This is a question of parallel structure. You already have the non-underlined form: as much by wearing. Now you need to find match to that structure. The idiom in English is as much by x as by y. That leaves you with choices D and E. Choice D violates parallel structure by using the word disregard instead of disregarding, to match wearing. Choice E is the correct answer.
