IN B, "they will sell them later" sounds not right...C is better.

C looks ok, but i have a question: the idiom is not "intend to"? We have "intend to" in D. OA?

C looks right. the "it" in answer D is confusing as to what it is referring to...the Act or the Passage of the Act.

E says that "The proliferation of so-called cybersquatters led to he Anti-Cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act" which changes the meaning of the sentence.

question guys. Does the "allowing" in option E implies that the act allowed people to do something only in that time it was passed? whereas the "allows" in option C implies that the act is still allowing people to do something even today?
