I also got stuck between D & E?
The only reason I think I would choose 'E' over 'D' is 'coz E is shorter. Other than that I donot see any other reason?

Do you have the OE?
On an exam day well I would have ticked 'D' :shock:

A and B lack parallelism

C is wrong because it suggests that steers acquiring certain charactcteristics caused crossbreeding

D is passive

E is correct cuz crossbreeding is used to acquire.
