MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



You have seen many questions like this, that involve usage of as idioms. If you say: X happens not so much because of y, what follows the not so much idiom? The word ‘as’. For example, he is not so much witty as he is talkative. Eliminate A, D and E. B is not parallel. Choice C is the correct answer.
