its a simple case of parallelism, not only X but also Y
Where X and Y need to be parallel.
Only option E follows this structure.

Note:
Sometimes " Also" can be omitted from the " but also ".
Hence not only X but Y is correct sometimes. ( Provided there are no other errors in this structure)

Not quite sure. The question meaning does not imply that its a not only, but also case. it says its not because because of the first one and its because of the second one. Not only, but also suggests that its because of both of them.

Experts, any suggesions?

None of the options except (E) uses correct Idiomatic Usage ( Not Only X , But also ) and Parallel structure, hence correct answer must be (E)

E has the correct form of usage of “not only because.... but also because” hence correct. Rest all have parallelism issues
