E. Here, we need contrast which is brought by usage of but. So, option B and D can be eliminated. Being is not correct in option C.

It's all about parallelism & idiomatic usage of not X but (rather) Y, in which X and Y must be parallel. Therefore, B, C & D are easily eliminated.
A suggests auxiliary be verb after but, while we need a verb in simple present, something that is best provided by option E.

Official Explanation :

Choices A and B are incorrect because are the result from is unidiomatic; result from or are the result of are the idiomatic forms.

Choices B, C, and D are faulty because but is needed to complete the construct ion do not reveal but ( verb ) .

Choice E is the best answer.

it is not X but rather Y construction.

A - it looks like not reveal but rather are (which is auxialary verb) - incorrect

B - some shift should be there

C- being - incorrect usage

D - and- wrong usage

E - perfect as per our prethink - correct

Hi sudarshan22 GMATNinja GMATNinjaTwo

I successfully eliminated B, C, & D.

Was confused between A and E and opted for E as felt that "are" in option A is not correct because of Singular Plural error with "Slips of the tongue".
