112. An unusually strong cyclist can, it is hoped, provide enough power to set a new distance record for human-powered aircraft in MITâ€™s diaphanous construction of graphite fiber and plastic.
(A) can, it is hoped, provide enough power to set
(B) it is hoped, can provide enough power that will set
(C) hopefully can provide enough power, this will set
(D) is hopeful to set
(E) hopes setting
