Correct Parallelism: not only by ..... but also by ....

A. Suggested by new research is the fact that people who achieve phenomenal success do so, not only by visualizing their success in future endeavors, but also, by recalling their past successes, creating a tremendous surge in confidence.
—> Passive voice is avoided, parallelism is not followed (but also, by) —> Wrong

B. New research suggests that people that achieve phenomenal success visualize their success in future endeavors and also recall their past successes to create a tremendous surge in confidence.
—> People “that” is wrong usage, “to create a tremendous surge in confidence” —> wrong meaning —> Wrong

—> Persons usage is wrong, verb form > Noun form (achieve > achievement), successes, which create is correct, creates is wrong —> Wrong

The best answer is option D.

Option A is wordy compared with option D. Suggested by a new research is the fact that people is excessively wordy. A more concise version is New research suggests that people as per the construction in option D.

Option B changes the meaning of the sentence. In addition, the contrast in the sentence is lost in option B.

Option C: The use of a which clause which creates tremendous surge in confidence erroneously modifies only the recollection of past experiences . It is supposed to modify both by the visualization of success in future endeavors and by the recollection of past successes.

Option D: Correct. The idiom not only x but also y is rightly used. x: by visualizing their success in future endeavors and y: by recalling their past successes are parallel. The participial phrase creating a tremendous surge in confidence rightly presents the results of the preceding clause.

Option E: The use of not only x but also y is inappropriate because x: by visualizing their success in future endeavors and y: they recall their past successes are not parallel. Hence option E is incorrect.

MEANING
Research suggests that people who achieve great success do so not only by X, but also by Y.
We use "who" when referring to humans not "that;
Idiom: "not only X but also Y" must maintain parallelism.

I would go for C.
A. Indirect construction and wordy.
B. THAT doesn’t go with People at a relative connector.
E. Parallelism mismatch (not only.... but also....)

In between c & d.
But, VERBing in D doesn’t make sense to me. PEOPLE CAN NOT CREATE SURGRE IN CONFIDENCE.
RATHER, RECOLLECTION of past successes CREATES SURGE IN CONFIDENCE.
SO, I would go for C.

Imo. D

Suggested by new research is the fact that people who achieve phenomenal success do so, not only by visualizing their success in future endeavors, but also, by recalling their past successes, creating a tremendous surge in confidence.

A. Suggested by new research is the fact that people who achieve phenomenal success do so, not only by visualizing their success in future endeavors, but also, by recalling their past successes, creating a tremendous surge in confidence. - Incorrect verb, past verb (suggested) is used and parallelism error, ...not only x but also y, here there is a comma after but also.

B. New research suggests that people that achieve phenomenal success visualize their success in future endeavors and also recall their past successes to create a tremendous surge in confidence. - Relative pronoun who is preferred for people than that. Distorts the meaning by using 'and' to achieve success rather than how they achieve success and also people achieved to create surge in confidence.

C. New research suggests that the achievement of phenomenal success by persons is accomplished not only by the visualization of success in future endeavors but also by the recollection of past successes, which creates a tremendous surge in confidence.- Modifier error, placement of by persons changes the meaning. Relative pronoun error, which can refer to past successes or achievement.

D. New research suggests that people who achieve phenomenal success do so not only by visualizing their success in future endeavors but also by recalling their past successes, creating a tremendous surge in confidence. - Seems no error, hold it.

E. New research suggests that people who achieve phenomenal success do so not only by visualizing their success in future endeavors, but also they recall their - parallelism error

Official Explanation:

This version states the idea clearly, correctly, and concisely, using parallel structure. Choice a is bulky and awkward with its opening phrase suggested by new research is the fact that; it also has several superfluous commas. Choice b incorrectly uses that instead of who to refer to people, and while it is not wordy, it is not as fluent as choice d. Choice c is wordy, relying on bulky passive constructions and prepositional phrases. Choice e is incorrect because it lacks parallel structure.
