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.
