As i mentioned, proposed development zones can represent a new principle.

It does not make sense to say proposed development zone is same as principles. D seems to suggesting the same thing.

(D) are not a new principle, but one that
(E) are not new in principle; it

I was between A and B.
Finally went with B (idiom: not X but Y)

Whats wrong with A? ... I believe "it" -- clearly refers to principle..

A sounds odd, Suresh. "zones" is plural while "it" is singular. Moreover, it is not clear what "it" refers to- is it the zones or is it the proposal? Ofcourse, WE know what "it" refers to. But the sentence given does not make it very clear.

Thanks.

A ) here "it" can refer to "proposal" or "principle" .. so it is ambigous

B --> one --represents proposal.
"proposal is not X but Y.. " Y -- proposal.

Is above reasoning correct?

I think it should be B.

The proposed urban development zones represent not a new principle, but one (a principle) that was employed in "Operation Bootstrap" in Puerto Rico.

one refers -----> principle
