Not a math question, but I imagine the answer is E, though C is actually entirely possible - namely breeding to counteract the appearance of traits.

I feel the answer is E.

As per parallel A and B are wrong.

C has "acquiring" which does not go with "to provide"
D is altered intent

Hence, E. E is precise and parallel
