A sounds good here but all the other sound and read horrid. However I am not sure what is "it" refering to.

look at the bold...if you replace 'to' with 'that' you get:

"The aim...is that"

which is clearly incorrect

That's why I thought of D. Why is D out?


"Aim is to" is the correct idiom. Aim is that does not make sense.

agreed.

"the aim that........" is correct.
"the aim is that........" is not correct.

A might not be the ideal one but is the best among tha all.

"A" it is.

We need to start the sentence after "the aim X is" with infinitive "to".
So only "A" & "B" enter finals & "A" wins the match! :-D

I think "it" is used here in "it rains heavily in India" sense!

Actually, if "it" doesn't seem to fit as a pronoun, check if it is "it rains" type of usage ;)

I also get confused with sentences starting with "it. But Vivek's example makes perfect sense..
