I think "most" and "thorough" is kind of repetative, so correct sentence should have only thorough and not the word most.
So A, C, and E are out.

Moreover study is focused on particular effects, so we cannot use "a" instead we should use "the".

So for me B is the answer.

definite A

Nothing wrong with the original; sentence is meant to emphasize the importance of the study by saying that it represents the most thorough attempt at X

Definite vs. indefinite article or noun modifier issue:
Eliminate C, D and E


Between A and B:
B describes the purpose of the study (no comparison).
A represents superlative comparison of the study among many same studies


A the most thorough attempt to gauge the impact (Hold it)
B the thorough attempt to gauge the impact
C a most thorough attempt to gauge the impact
D a thorough attempt to gauge the impact
E a most thorough gauge of the impact

Answer: A
