It has been said that Thomas Jefferson, as president of the United States, was brilliant at using political power in a way that people did not know that he was using it.
A. in a way that people did not know that he was using it B. such that people did not know C. that people did not know that he was D. so that people were unaware E. in such a way that people were not aware of his using it
Got exactly this question on my real GMAT and chose E....was my feeling...but still do not understand why E???

Obviously E . The usage preposition + [Noun] +[participle ] is frowned upon I can't believe i know more than daagh ....yaaay
I wouldn’t subscribe to B, C and D for the simple reason, that they are not making clear what people did not know or unaware.
Between A and E; I would rather prefer 'his using' rather than 'him using', because a gerund cannot be preceded by an object but can be preceded by a possessive adjective such ‘his’ But the problem as I see in E is its passive nature of saying People were not aware. On the contrary, A is more dynamic and active saying people did not know. So my needle may lean towards A over E
