A is wordy, B is wordy/awkward, E has pronoun issues. Very tough question but going to say C, because I always favor semicolons!

Oops - yes - it looks like B is the better option. I must remember that the correct option is not always perfect! Sometimes you have to take the lesser of two evils - wordiness and awkwardness aside!

(B) as well, "not ..., but (rather)"

> In C & D, "The proposed urban development zones" wrongly equals to "a principal".
> In E, S-V agreement problem, along with "it".
> In A, "it" is not clear.
