I go with (C).Because only (C) and (D) clearly explain that 'fund is intended to sustain..'And then (C) is better than (D) because of parallelism.

doesn't looks fair to foreign student.

Did alaska depleted its oil reserves? Or did US depleted its oil reserves?
Is the fund intended to fix some mess? Or Alaska just want to do some good deed?

I have no idea, so I don't see anything wrong with A and C. But C seems to change the meaning of A .

A is wrong because.... among other things: Alaska regularly deposits some of its profits from the sale of oil into a special fund, with the intention to sustain the stateâ€™s economy after the exhaustion of its oil reserves

Can you clarify what its is modifying? economy or Alaska?

Secondly, C does not change the meaning of the sentence... it is less wordy and clearly refer that oil reserves are exhausted in Alaska....

got it. The modifier problem.

Still, I feel that without the knowledge of what really happen, we are in disadvantage.

Of course we are

Myself is also a non native english speaker. I would recommend you a Manhattan GMAT Sentence Correction book, it really helped me to achieve some substantial breakthrough....
