I think the correct answer is C. Don't pick D as there is a "Ing " i.e exhausting.

Guys,

Ans is C.

A is wrong for ambigous "its". C is unambigously says what is intended in the main sentence.
One more reason for why A is wrong: read it as "Alaska does smth with the intention to sustain smth" - guys sorry but it is a completely perfect bullsh*t. Alaska is a piece of land.
Ask yourself can a piece of land have intentions??!

I agree. I'd say D is wrong because of the above reason. It has a meaning issue! Alaska can't exhaust its oil reserve.

A and D is wrong because of the unclear modifier "its"

Answer is C.
