(A) glaciers, rather than being the cold, dry polar regions, would be instead the cool, moist middle latitudes( awkward,being,would be instead)

(B) glaciers are not the cold, dry polar regions but the cool, moist middle latitudes( not but rather is correct construction)

(C) glaciers are the cool, moist middle latitudes rather than the cold, dry polar regions( correct)

(D) glaciers, instead of being the cold, dry polar regions, would be the cool, moist middle latitudes( instead of being the cold dry polar regions modifies the glaciers,incorrect)

(E) glaciers are, instead of the cold, dry polar regions, rather the cool, moist middle latitudes(use of instead of and rather is not correct)

Will go with choice C

Thanks

(A) glaciers, rather than being the cold, dry polar regions, would be instead the cool, moist middle latitudes
Incorrect, redundancy error.

(B) glaciers are not the cold, dry polar regions but the cool, moist middle latitudes
Correct

(C) glaciers are the cool, moist middle latitudes rather than the cold, dry polar regions
Incorrect, modifier error. The non-underline part incorrectly modifies 'dry polar regions.

(D) glaciers, instead of being the cold, dry polar regions, would be the cool, moist middle latitudes
Incorrect, wrong usage of being.

(E) glaciers are, instead of the cold, dry polar regions, rather the cool, moist middle latitudes
Incorrect, redundancy error.


IMO B for the highlighted errors in the red.
