A. fund, with the intention to sustain the states economy after the exhaustion of its oil reserves [exhausted preferred over exhaustion – eliminate it]


B. fund, the intention of which is to sustain the states economy after they have exhausted their oil reserves [ they has no clear referent – eliminate it]


C. fund intended to sustain the states economy after oil reserves are exhausted [ Hold it]

D. fund intended to sustain the states economy after exhausting its oil reserves [ implies Alaska exhausting its own reserves – eliminate it]

E. fund that they intend to sustain the states economy after oil reserves are exhausted [ they has no clear referent – eliminate it]

Answer: C

In D 'its' is referring to what? fund / economy / Alaska. Common sense says Alaska but ..GMAT does not allow that.
Moreover, if we look at the choice D closely, it is conveying that Alaska is wantedly working on exhausting its oil.

E - they has no clear referent.
B - intention of which is saying it is the intention of fund, but actually it is the intention of Alaska.
A - fund with the intention?

C wins.

Edited for typo.

A. fund, with the intention to sustain the states economy after the exhaustion of its oil reserves

B. fund, the intention of which is to sustain the states economy after they have exhausted their oil reserves - (PRONOUN REFERENCE ERROR)

C. fund intended to sustain the states economy after oil reserves are exhausted
D. fund intended to sustain the states economy after exhausting its oil reserves

E. fund that they intend to sustain the states economy after oil reserves are exhausted - (PRONOUN ERROR)

C & D - GUYS I THINK THAT IF WE CONSIDER THESE TWO OPTIONS THEN 'FUND INTENDED" IMPLIES THAT THE FUND ITSELF TRIES TO SUSTAIN THE ECONOMY..
BUT IT IS THE ACT OF THE STATE FORMING THIS FUND THAT WISHES TO SUSTAIN THE ECONOMY


IMO A
