Nopes! The correct answer is "E".


I picked D at first, but E is better. The original sentence expressed certainty with 'will make', the answer should too.

WILL" is required here to show something that will happen in future after thet company has announced bla blah blah.....

Down to AE

A is out coz 'which' reference which is wrong

Go with E

In D an extra 'a' between as & part is making the sentence unidiomatic. Hence we can go for E .

It's straight E.
Also notice the use of "will" in E.

Answer: E

"Will" is required to convey future course of action.
"As part of a deal" is idiomatic.
