Pls, post explanations.

Tricky one ... I go for E, POE as follows:

Eliminate A,B "by suggesting", not parallel (I think the verb "suggest", should match "propose", which comes after the related pronouns "some" and "others").
Eliminate C, "for decreasing" is incorrect, should be "to decrease"
Eliminate D, as the "by calling" is again not parallel.

Now - I recognize the last "calling" in (E) isn't great either (I would prefer 'call'), but it seems like the best answer given the circumstances...
