A. not only has one of the world's largest populations, with over 56 million people, but also has --> CORRECT

B. not only has one of the worlds largest populations, with over 56 million people, it also has --> Does not use the idiom 'not only X but also Y correctly' Incorrect

C. not only has one of the world's largest populations, with over 56 million people, but moreover it is --> Moreover changes the meaning.

D. with 56 million people, making it one of the world's most populous countries, but also has --> Not only is missing

E. has one of the world's largest populations, with over 56 million people, but also has --> Same as D

I agree that answer choice A is the correct one due to the idiomatic construction "not only.... but also".

The other answer choices are either unidiomatic, compare apples to orange and suffer from both issues.

Regards,
Chris

KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



A

A not only construction must be completed with but also. The original sentence does so, and has no other errors, so (A) is correct. (B) is missing the but (C) uses moreover it is. (E) drops the not only while keeping the but also. (D) too drops the not only but also creates a sentence fragment by changing the verb into a participle (making).
