    (A) but supplementing - verb form is wrong and not parallel with first sentence
    (B) and had supplemented - usage of 'though' is more appropriate than 'and'. usage of past perfect tense(had supplemented) is not required.
    (C) and even though they supplemented - 'and even though' is redundant
    (D) although they supplemented - correct
    (E) but with supplementing - verb form is wrong and not parallel with first sentence
