after the "and" there needs to be a new s/v, we are left with B and D.

I think B is correct, "to do that" is more correct and ll to previous sectence.

a)... it should always replace a noun (in this case its replacing a sentence)
b) has devoted his subsequent career to do that (this looks like he is still doing it)

c) devoted his subsequent career to such an end (wordy illogical)
d) has devoted his subsequent career for that (same as b)
e) devoted his subsequent career to that end (Correct)

I hope this explains

Why is 'has devoted' wrong.
Subsequent career could mean that he is still doing this,after starting from the age of 7.

Vineet, you posted the question. You would know what the OA is?

It's between C and E. I am not sure which one is better though and why?

Guess E, but it really sucks to bring in new words into the corrected text!!!!rather than having an option that ends with ....to do so.
