I will go with E.

A -- which modifies 950 million .. wrong
B,C,D --out
Original sentence talks about future purchase (it will purchase) .. second part requires "will make" .
also
D -- distorts the original meaning.. it means.. "to make largest manufacturing company, they are making the deal.."

E remains.

OA is E.

Suresh,
For A, can't which modify the whole clause preceding it?

I would have chosen answer E, but would have eliminated A for another reason. I believe that "which" can modify the whole clause proceding it, but "is part of a deal" does not match with "it will purchase". "The purchase" (noun) is a part of a deal. A verb ("will purchase") cannot be part of a deal.

Does that reasoning make any sense?
