This was our auction.  (matchpoints). 

1 was 16+ unbalanced or 17+ balanced.

Pass over the 1 overcall showed any 0-4.

After W's double, 2NT would have been lebensohl.  Over that call, W could have bid 3 to show continued game interest.

Everything behaved, and the Q was on.  Making 5 for 7 of 17 matchpoints.  Bidding game and making 5 would have been 14.

Please select up to 2 choices.

W's sequence of X then 3 was strong, E should have raised.
W's X then 3 did not do justice to his hand since E had not bid 2NT lebensohl.
W should have cue-bid 3 over 3.
W should have tried for game in clubs.
W should have bid 4 over 3.
E should have used lebensohl, and then should have passsed 3.
E should have used lebensohl and then raised to 4.
E should have raised to 4 anyway.
Nobody was at fault, this is not a great game despite the result.
There was a better way for W to bid his hand after the strong 1. (please explain).
