nothing wrong with A

B) more and more is redundant, "that" preferred over "which"
C) "for making ever more" is incorrect and wordy
D) "with the purpose" is too wordy, "and which"
E) "in order" not necessary, no clear referrant to "it"

A for me, sounds good and concise

For B, "more and more" is redundant.
For C, "they" has no clear reference
For D, this is not even a sentence
For E, "it" has no clear reference

A looks the best.

Can elim. anything that doesn't use to at the beg.

B: is clumsy and awkward.
