'The particular design' requires 'allows'. Eliminate A B.

'allows it' in E is the most concise and accurate.

I pick E.

I will definitely go for E. Has to be "allows" as it refers to design....singular verb...........which eliminates A and B.

Whats the explanation for D? I prefer 'allows it' in E over 'allows that it' in D. Obviously I am missing some grammar rules in my assessment. Can someone give some insight?

I also see E better than D, but one thing that is nagging me is the use of idiom. The correct idiom is "allows for" as in " This plan allows for ....

But E looks good too. D is wordier than E, but can't find any other issue with D.
