Option E is Incorrect because of following reason:-
Correct comparison marker is - Result NOT OF X, BUT OF Y
Moreover, kindly note that X & Y should be of same form .i.e either NOUN, MODIFIER, CLAUSE etc
Incorrect comparison marker are -
Result NOT OF X, BUT Y
Result NOT OF X, BUT RESULT Y
Result NOT OF X, BUT RESULT OF Y

Option E uses 3rd variant of Incorrect comparison market. Hence it is INCORRECT
