(A) however he may choose to do so

(B) in order to choose to do so

(C) in whatever ways he is choosing to do this

(D) by choosing to do this

(E) when he chooses to do so

Project SC Butler

I believe there is a clear meaning issue in the question that helps us narrow down to 2 option choices quickly. We know that CFO of Fastco has been charged with reporting the earnings of the employees, and it is now one of his duties and not a choice that he may exercise. The choice that he presumably has is in the ways he can possibly report the earnings in.

This meaning issue helps us clearly eliminate option choices B, D, and E.

In C, I find an issue with the verb tenses. C says "in whatever ways he is choosing to do this he will have to abide by relevant state tax laws". I see no reason as to why the present continuous and the future tenses together.

Clearly, A is our winner.
