After leaving the Pentagon, MacTaggart could have profited from his connections with defense contractors, but he refused to do so.

A. After leaving the Pentagon, MacTaggart could have profited from his connections with defense contractors, but he refused to do so.
Correct naswer since the meaning and the grammer of the sentence are correct.

B. MacTaggart could have profited from his connections with defense contractors after leaving the Pentagon, but he refused to do it.
'to do it...' is wrong for the anction for refering to an action 'to do so..' is correct.

C. MacTaggart could have profited after leaving the Pentagon from his connections with defense contractors, but he refused to do so.
Change is in the intended meaning,Wrong.

D. Having left the Pentagon, MacTaggart could have used his connections with defense contractors to profit, but he refused to do it.
Change in meaning,as the intented meaning is different from that of the correct sentence.

E. Refusing to profit from his connections with defense contractors, MacTaggart could have done so after leaving the Pentagon.
Change in meaning, so wrong.

After leaving the Pentagon, MacTaggart could have profited from his connections with defense contractors, but he refused to do so.

A. After leaving the Pentagon, MacTaggart could have profited from his connections with defense contractors, but he refused to do so. (Correct)
B. MacTaggart could have profited from his connections with defense contractors after leaving the Pentagon, but he refused to do it. (Usage of 'to do it' is wrong)
C. MacTaggart could have profited after leaving the Pentagon from his connections with defense contractors, but he refused to do so. ('From his connections with defense contractors' should come immediately after profited. Otherwise, it is misplaced modifier)
D. Having left the Pentagon, MacTaggart could have used his connections with defense contractors to profit, but he refused to do it.(Mactaggart could have used his connection. It totally changes the meaning of original sentence)
E. Refusing to profit from his connections with defense contractors, MacTaggart could have done so after leaving the Pentagon. (MacTaggart is refusing profit. It again changes the meaning of original sentence)

Kudos please if you like my explanation.
