This question illustrates the range of time of an event. The use of Between in a proper manner is very important.

Option A - Correct
This option shows correct parallelism and the use of 'between' is not redundant. Thus, making it the correct option to this question.;

Option B - Incorrect
This option is awkwardly constructed and does not follow parallelism. The percentage is a range and between should be applied in the sentence.

Option C - Incorrect
Flawed construction that fails to establish that the event is between a range of time. It's titled from the actual meaning.

Option D - Incorrect
The first clause of the sentence is flawed and does not follows syntax. Thus, this option is invalid.

Option E - Incorrect
So irrelevant and wrongly constructed. This is far from it. Occurring from... Bad sentence startup.
