We cant eliminate and reduce a loophole at the same time. so eliminate choices with "and" - A,D

B- it doesnt have not only, but also - eliminate this choice

choice E uses singular verb form "includes" for plural subject "loopholes" - eliminate this choice

We need an "or"--->A and D out

"loopholes" requires a plural "include"--->E out.

"not only...but also" is better than "not only...but"--->B out

Firstly,when we read the "proposed for elimination and at least reduction" part of sentence we get the wrong usage of and, the correct usage is OR Eliminate choices A and D Secondly the correct usage of not only .... but also option B incorrectly uses not only .... but also eliminate it out of option C and E, correct usage is include for the noun loopholes therefore correct answer option C
