B looks good.
'that' is required in the sentence.
'opportunities to create' is the correct idiom.

Answer should be B.

In the original sentence, the helping verb "is" correctly used for "A breed" (Singular) subject, but "opportunities for creating" is not an optimal use when it comes to show purpose. Infinitive should have been used.
So, A,D and E are out.

In option C usage of "consider" is idiomatically wrong. Correct use is "Consider X Y": such as, I consider him a friend. So, rejected C. Again I think, in option C, use of "That" is not mandatory; without "that" also meaning will be clear.

Correct

Both A and B use progressive tense "is looking". The use of infinitive "to create" is perhaps something that slightly tilts the choice towards B.

Quite a close choice overall.
