I would have chosen D on the exam. I think E's "do" can be ellipsed and kept short as in D. "will" is necessary for futurity.

between d and e I prefer E. I would prefer maintain the 'do' as we are talking about actions and this word defines the action.

By the way, whats the OA ?

My choice is E

I would go for D.
As it sounds gramatically correct to me.

Paul, Krish: how did you eliminated A?

D, same reason as Paul.

On eliminating A, I guess
"I reached office about the same time as Paul did"
is more idiomatic than
"I reached office about the same time that Paul did"
