IMO A

so 'that' refers to nearest noun right? I was almost sure to select this option (A) but went for E.

is my above assumption, 'that' refers to nearest noun, right?

I don't understand your question?
I see only one noun here so no question to what 'that' refers to in her.

'that' refers to the jet engine. Although I believe "and it" is a correct construction in choice E, the "have the capability to..." is wordy and unnecessary.

I agreed to your answer ... was just asking whether 'that' refers to nearest noun. Anyways, I know it but some how I missed the answer ..

Thanks a bunch.

By process of elim, i picked A

b>tested that could eventually have the capability of propelling aircraft anywhere in the world within two hours or
to help
have is plural, whereas the subject is jet engine, which is singuar
to help - We do not have anything parallel - to help

c>tested, eventually able to propel aircraft anywhere in the world within two hours, or helping
No parallel structure. to propel is not parallel to helping

d> and e> both have parallelism issues.

Hence A is the best answer
