The sentence infers that the establishment of of land trusts in England should be praised not only because it is restricting over-development but also because it allows the land to be inherited by future generations.

Option A- INCORRECT
This option does not compare the two sentence appropriately.
It is supposed to say 'not only because of '.... 'But also because of' to show correct comparison.

Option B- INCORRECT
Using 'and' in the sentence changes the structures of the sentence. The correct conjunction is 'but' to show the correct comparison.

option C- INCORRECT
The sentence is supposed to have the conjunction 'but' to give it a parallel structure.

Option D- INCORRECT
It is incorrect because, it uses an illogical way of comparing the two separate sentences in the option.

Option E- CORRECT
This option is correct because it uses the correct idiom and parallel structures.
