Corporate finance committees do not plan the detailed activities of the various divisions in a large firm, but by their allocation of investment funds they make strategic judgements as to where the firm should expand.

a) by their allocation of investment funds they make strategic judgements as to where the firm should expand
b) when they allocate investment funds, they make strategic judgements about where the firm might be expanding
c) they make strategic judgements on where the firm should expand when they allocate investment funds
d) by allocating investment funds, they will make strategic judgements about where the firm might be expanding
e) allocations of investments fund as to where the firm should expand are their exercise in strategic judgement

I thought answe is C, but OA is A, can someone explain?

I think this is classic example of first thing first.
corp finance committees make judgment by allocating funds....not make judgment and then allocate funds.

"C" shows that committee first judges and then allocate funds accordingly but it changes the meaning of the sentence where it reflects that funding is the process through which a committee makes judgment of direction of firm's expansion.

I thought its C because thats only parallel structure appear to me, however, your solution is logical.
