IMO E.
(A) the president’s directive established price controls. President’s directive can not establish control, subject should be president.
(B) the president’s directive was to establish price controls. Too awkward
(C) the president was successful in the establishment of controls on prices. Too wordy
(D) the president had instituted controls on prices. Unnecessarily uses perfect tense
(E) the president established price controls. Simple and precise with president as subject.

E is correct.

I rephrased the sentence to : President established something in an unusual move.

What is the source of this problem?
