Tough choice between D and E.

D seems unparallel and awkward.
E is almost correct, except it could be interpreted that the nobel prize is awarded by an author.

E, my friends. It's a classic case of parallelism. You must compare like with like. Take out the prepositional phrase "which is given for a specific work", and you have "Unlike the Pulitzer...the Nobel Prize". You wouldn't compare a prize to an author, or to an author's achievement - it's about the prizes. So that narrows your choices down to C, D and E. Then you look at your prepositional phrase again - what is the Pulitzer given for? It is given for a specific work. So you must use parallelism again to make the proper comparison, which is contained in E. The Nobel is awarded for a lifetime of achievement.

The last part of the sentence in E - "by an author" makes it awkward. doesn't it? In that case, isn't C a better choice?

D makes sense but E is parallel, although "by" doesn't sound very good. we must find a comparison is b/w nobel prize and pulitzer..so C,D or E.
it is awarded for smtg...so E is correct, because it is parallel to the first sentence
