B seems correct.
that allows editors....to assemble.
C is incorrect because of "a process leaving..."

OK B is the answer but I am kind of questioning how we can use "rather thaN" but not "instead of" ('cos we are tLking about editors and printers)...

"rather than" is used for verbs

"instead of" is used for nouns

Any explanations please?

A,C,E -> out. 'leaves' or 'leaving to' is wrong.
Between B and D, B is best. '....rather that printers' correctly contrasts the process of who gets to assemble the print images.

I say B.

Pagination is a term not the process itself so this elminates A and C.

E is awkward and wordy.

B and D: I said B b/c I choose "rather than" over "but not"

But nobody replied trivikram's question. OK B is the answer but I am kind of questioning how we can use "rather thaN" but not "instead of" ('cos we are tLking about editors and printers)...

"rather than" is used for verbs

"instead of" is used for nouns

Any explanations please?

I have never read this:

"rather than" is used for verbs

"instead of" is used for nouns

I have read that "rather than" is preferable over "instead of"

my pick is (B)

the answer is B
rather than is used in cases where one is preferred over the other
instead of is used in cases where something is used as a mere substitute/replacement

e.g. if i have the choice, i will have ice cream rather than coffee
if there is no ice cream, i will have coffee instead of ice cream

The term "pagination" is not the process but refers to the process so A & C are out.
has reference to the process is extremely wordy and incorrect usage leaving to editors assembling.
Only options left are B & D.

that vs which Rule

“that” must be used for the restrictive clause, and “which” for the non-restrictive clause.
The information about the process is important and cant be left out so that makes it restrictive clause and hence must be preceded by a "that".
OA : B
