the best way to answer such questions is to look at the core structure of the sentence.

the act of congress that made provision .. also established the library

now look at E with the same eye. this is what you get.

the act of congress that made provision .. also establishing the library

we have two problems with E.
1) parallelism. the act made .. also establishing

2) change of meaning. the act made provision .. also establishing library
original meaning: the act made provision AND established library.
E: the act made provision, thereby establishing library.

A is the correct choice.

The act is working as the subject of the sentense and modifying simply all the activities.

A is correct.

A is the best.

It would be a lot better if the question is posted directly rather than inside an attachment.
