will go for D..but by poe d is only option left..
correct idiom is attempt to and not attempt at so option B,C n E are gone..
left wid A and D
in A it does not hav any antecedent..so eliminate it
thus left wid d

Dear Amit - I have a request. Kindly don't post your answers/views along with the question. Let others try first and then you can put your views etc. Otherwise it becomes a source of distraction.

thanks
