The ideal cities of Ebenezer Howard, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Le Corbusier, different from one another as they were, were all based on a belief that physical order in itself could bring about the good life.

A. different from one another as they were

Correct usage of "different from one another" idiom.
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

B. different one from the other as they were

"different one from the other" doesn't sound idiomatic.
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

C. different from each other as every one was

"different from each other" doesn't sound idiomatic.
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

D. differing as each was, one from the other
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

E. although each differed from

Meaning error. Doesn't specify what the cities are different from. INCORRECT
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Hence option A

Q: The ideal cities of Ebenezer Howard, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Le Corbusier, different from one another as they were, were all based on a belief that physical order in itself could bring about the good life.

A. different from one another as they were - idiomatic
B. different one from the other as they were – not idiomatic, should be ‘different from one another’
C. different from each other as every one was – not idiomatic, should be ‘different from one another’
D. differing as each was, one from the other – too wordy and ungrammatical
E. although each differed from – ‘from what?’ what are the cities are different from?
