Should be A....

B,D,E are wrong bcos they use different than... Correct Idiom is different from

C lacks parallelism ... tasks for x and y should be used as in A....

to differ ... from is the correct idiom, so it leaves us with A and C.

A. for two things: idiom and llism.

the correct idiom: "different from". this eliminates B, D and E.
llism: for which x and for which y. this eliminates C.

|| for which shows in A , D and E.

D and E lacks in poor idiom.
