The necessary construction is "not only from [x], but also from [y]." Thus you can eliminate (a) and (b). You know from the original sentence that the benefit is from profits (E), not from requests (as in C) or from the professionals themselves (D).[/i]

The original sentence says that "Temporary-employment agencies benefit not only from the DEMAND, but also from REQUESTS/PROFESSIONALS/PROFITS. If they benefit from from DEMAND, they safely can benefit from REQUESTS.

But I agree with your logic.

A and B are incorrect for the reason previously given.

E is that best of the other choices because it most clearly implies that the agency benefits most directly from the "profits" rather than the "requests" or" professionals"
