There are any number of skilled freelancers who can develop strategy and create marketing materials with a keen eye to using proven methods, but also to developing new and innovative techniques.

A. with a keen eye to using proven methods, but also to developing new and innovative techniques – WRONG. Not only .. but also idiom is missing.
B. with a keen eye for using proven methods, and also to developing new and innovative techniques – WRONG. ‘For using’ is incorrect. ‘And also’ changes meaning.
C. with a keen eye not only to using proven methods, but also to developing new and innovative techniques – CORRECT. ‘Not only .. but also’ idiom correct.
D. with a keen eye to using proven methods, but to developing now and innovative techniques – WRONG. ‘But’ changes meaning of the sentence.
E. with a keen eye not only to using proven methods, and also to developing now and innovative technique – WRONG. Incorrect idiom.

Answer (C).

...create marketing materials "with a keen eye to using proven methods, but also to...." Here the usage of but also is wrong in the original sentence.

Either the answer must be in the form of NOT ONLY X...BUT ALSO Y or else some other parallel construction.

Why not skim through the options to find this structure? If it's not there, then we can go find aome correct construction.

Aha! Option C uses this correct idiom.
"with a keen eye NOT ONLY to using proven methods, BUT ALSO to developing new and innovative techniques"
Plus the sentence is parallel- not only to using....but also to developing.

Hence, answer is option C

Not only.. but also.. is the correct idiom. The only correct usage of this idiom is in choice C.

A. with a keen eye to using proven methods, but also to developing new and innovative techniques - but also (without not only) is wrong
B. with a keen eye for using proven methods, and also to developing new and innovative techniques - and also is wrong
C. with a keen eye not only to using proven methods, but also to developing new and innovative techniques
D. with a keen eye to using proven methods, but to developing now and innovative techniques
E. with a keen eye not only to using proven methods, and also to developing now and innovative techniques - and also is wrong

The answer is B since it is the only option which uses the right form of the idiom “a keen eye for”.

A and D are incorrect because they wrongly use “a keen to” which is the wrong construct. “For” is required instead of “to”.

C and E are also incorrect because they also use the wrong form of the idiom this way: “a keen eye not only to”.

Here we need the construction Not Only.. But Also
because we are comparing the use of proven methods to the development of new methods.
Only options c does this.
