IMHO (D) is wordy and hence non parallel...

Correct idiomatic & parallelism usage is - Same to X as to Y

A. Kazakhstan as to -> "to an illiterate shepherd" PARALLEL with "to a professional musician", CORRECT option
B. Kazakhstan, just as to -> "just as" is not required, "as" is sufficient
C. Kazakhstan; just as it would to a -> ; should follow with a statement that could stand on its own, that is not the case here
D. Kazakhstan, as it would to a -> what is "it" referring to and why use "would" here
E. Kazakhstan as a -> illogical, not required to dissect this option

D is not necessarily incorrect in my opinion, but it is wordier and clearly less appealing stylistically. A is the best answer

A. Kazakhstan as to

B. Kazakhstan, just as to

C. Kazakhstan; just as it would to a

D. Kazakhstan, as it would to a

E. Kazakhstan as a

A is the clear winner.

E is out for wrong comparison.

B, C, and D are out for using "it", an ambiguous pronoun.
