In 'E', I think there should be a comma instead of '.'
I will go for 'E'.
'asked to do so' is correctly used. The tenses are correct. And it doesn't alter the meaning.

Asked to do it is incorrect->A,B,C are out.
In D if where y is used as a conjunction the clause before it must be independent.
->D is out

I agree with Shaunak . If the "." in E is a typo for "," then E is correct.

Good question. Here's my take.

Quote:

(C) Under a provision of the Constitution that was never applied, whereby Congress is required to call a convention for considering possible amendments to the document when asked to do it formally

whereby acts as a preposition --- also the whole clause containing whereby becomes adjectival modifying Provision rendering the sentence as a whole without a MAIN Verb and hence incomplete grammatically.

exactly the same proposition can be applied for the sentence below.


(D) Under a provision of the Constitution that has never been applied, whereby Congress is required to call a convention to consider possible
amendments to the document when formally asked to do so $
