Why di you choose D instead E ?

Priya: A,B,C is ruled out, because the phrase talks about Customs Inspectors

Kindly share the explanation !!!
Y not B


"No matter how patiently they explain their reasons for confiscating certain items"- Customs inspectors are confiscating, not travellers. Hence, A, B and C are out.
(D) uses the correct "rather than" construction. "customs inspectors are often treated by travelers" is a much better construction than "treated not like government employees but wanton poachers by travelers".

Any other nuances that I am missing?
