I guess the answer is B

A,C,E are wrong because they are awkward..

Between B and D, B prevails.

Fitting X into Y is the correct idiom.

A. that of fitting what people want to see into the time they have available to see it in
B. fitting what people want to see into the time they have available
C. that of fitting what people want to see in the time which they have available
D. fitting what people want to see in the time they have available for seeing
E. the need to fit what people want to see into the available time for seeing


Answer is B

A - "it" is ambiguous and the sentence is awkward
B - Seems right - correct
C - problem....is that of fitting - very awkward
D - available for seeing - redundant
E - problem is the need - awkward - the need is not the problem - fulfilling that need is the problem - the right word is fitting
