"This" has no referrent in most of the options and by the way, Gmat doesn't likes "this". In E, what is "it" referring to? "it" will always standby for the noun but here it stands for "ended up giving away 85 percent of them". Thats incorrect.
In D, the meaning has entirely changed by using infinitive construction, implying an "intention".
In A, which modifies "program". It was NOT the program that won votes.
Logically speaking, since "but that" is being used, therefore a "that" phrase is needed for parallelism.
+1 C.
Hope that helps.

P.S. Always do mention the source of the question. It helps us to know the credibility of the question.
