B??

parallelism. contend that capitalism... and that it (capitalism).
"Both" requires "and", thence plural verb.

Iam a bit confused here. don't think the answer can be B or D. Ownership is singular-so 'is' needs to be used.My choice would be E.

Let me make matters worse and Choose C.

reasons:
1. Singular subject and 'is' is appropriate
2. 'it' or 'they' have confusing referent
3. '..is regarded as X........,not as Y....' looks parallel.

C is parrallel .... regarded as X not as Y
