30 sec. C is best
A) non parallel
B) non parallel
D) introduce participial clause which acts as an adjective and cannot "reflect" anything per se
E) distorts the sentence by placing "was a commitment" at the end

I'll go with C. "promoting' is not parallel here, so A & B are out. E is awkward. B does not make clear who it is that had no commitment......

35 Seconds(excluding explanation)
(C) it is.

A) B) and E) are not parallel.
D) has a misplaced modifier. (it is the offer and not the quota that reflects the commitment)

C (60 s -for answering, 7 min for typing in the below stuff)

Firstly eliminated choices based on non-use of "promotion". Out of C, D and E

E is out because
(i)"one" should also be present in the main clause
(ii) that *** that construction is incorrect
almost everything with E is wrong!!

Now C & D. D is out because of tense mismatch in main clause and dependant clause.

Therefore C
