C for me, too.

B and D out because of the verb tense.

I think devote sth to sth, so A out.

Between C and E, I prefer C: such an end more logical than that end.

himalaya,

THAT in D is a pronoun and should modify the noun and only noun. it can not find the noun it is referring to...

c is parallel

determined to x and devoted to y..

E.

Ritesh,

Why not E? Isn't E more specific and concise? E is also parallel and "that" is more specific than "such an end".

Himalaya..Whats the OA? and If i may, whats the source of this qn?

Thanks

I dont think E is right.

"That" is a pronoun and what should it refer to here. It should refer to a unambigious noun, which is not present here.
