It looks like 'to be intent on doing something' is the idiom tested here. E?

a. who is intending on running If using this version it would be intending to run
b. who has the intention of runningThis would be the intention to run
c. who is intent to runThe trick is that you are intent on doing something
d. intending on running Correct idiom would be intending to
e. intent on runningThis would be intent to run


Thus E is the correct answer

The uses of "intend" (verb) and "intent" (adjective) are very tricky.

Both idioms below are correct
(1) Intend + to do something --> "Intend" is VERB
(2) Intent + on doing something --> "intent" is ADJECTIVE

Thus,
* intend (verb) + on doing --> wrong
* intent (adj) + to do --> wrong.

Rule of thumb is:
Verb + to do;
Adjective + on doing.


Any political figure who is intending on running for president will not succeed without a large quantity of campaign money contributed by wealthy benefactors.

a. who is intending on running
Wrong. "intending" is verb --> "on running" is wrong.

b. who has the intention of running
Wrong. Too wordy. Moreover, "intention to do" is better.

c. who is intent to run
Wrong. "intent" is adjective --> "to run" is wrong.

d. intending on running
Wrong. "intending" is the verb-ing form of "intend" --> "on running" is wrong.

e. intent on running
Correct. "intent + on running" is correct idiom.

Hope it helps.
