A. have not only disputed the common notion that Edgar Allan Poe drank to excess but also questioned whether he drank

B. not only have disputed the common notion that Edgar Allan Poe drank to excess but also over whether he drank

C. have disputed not only the common notion that Edgar Allan Poe drank to excess but also whether he may not have drunk

D. not only have disputed the common notion that Edgar Allan Poe drank to excess but also questioned whether or not he had drunk

E. have disputed the common notion not only that Edgar Allan Poe drank to excess but also questioned whether he may not have drunk

Idiom is - not only X but also Y

C, D & E - Eliminate. Wrong Tense - "drunk"

Left with A & B

B - Eliminate. over - what ???
Hence A is the answer.
