My thoughts here:

- After quick read, obviously "because it convey" needs to be eliminated

Let's POE:
- Eliminate A from "because it convey"
- Keep B for now
- Eliminate C because it's inefficient
- Keep D...seems excellent
- Eliminate E because "for the reason" in reference to the writing inspiring people a) seems rather inefficent b) clearly is not AS correct as "because it conveys"

B or D?

D is cleaner. D it is.

Interestingly, after we're told that this is a sub-600 level question, we know the answer will be obvious, and therefore D.
