The correct idioms are - ' as X as Y ' and ' A less than B '
Only option D has the correct idiom construction .
In Option E if the part within commas is left unread, then 'effective does not go with most sedatives '

B uses ‘being’ wrong so it is out. C uses ‘but’, which is meant to show contradiction which is not the point of the sentence. A is wrong because ‘equally as’ is not idiomatic. E makes a parallelism error. D is the right answer.

To relieve anxiety, moderate exercise can be equally effective as, and less addictive than, most sedatives.

As can be used in four forms
- Comparison - Life can be as fun as you want.
- Simultaneous action - As I was travelling in subway, I noticed a thief running after stealing a purse.
- Reason - I dont want to buy donughts as restaurant has a long queue
- Presenting role/function - She took care of her as a mother.

Here, as is used for comparison.


With this understanding, lets see what the options can be.

A. effective as, and - We need as effective as here because that is the correct idiom form when comparing otherwise this would mean. That exercise is working as a sedative.

B. as effective as, while being - correct usage of first idiom, but while being gives wrong meaning.

C. effectively equal to, but - equally effectively equal to

D. as effective as, and - Correct usage of idiom

E. effective, and - No comparison so wrong because we are comparing here.
