For two reasons:

1) "pay by using" is wordy compared to "pay with"
2) should be "companies'" and not "company's"

I agree !
In addition to that to pay is parallel to profit so that just leaves us with A/E.

A. by using the company's earnings and to profit
B. by using the companies' earnings and by profiting
C. using the companies' earnings and profiting
D. with the company's earnings, profiting
E. with the companies' earnings and to profit


A & D are wrong because of "company's earnings".
B is wrong due to wrong parallelism. to pay off...and by profiting
D is wrong due to parallelism.
