can you explain why with the intention is wrong.

Alaska regularly deposits some of its profits from the sale of oil into a special fund, with the intention to sustain the state’s economy after the exhaustion of its oil reserves.

(A) fund, with the intention to sustain the state’s economy after the exhaustion of its oil reserves
(C) fund intended to sustain the state’s economy after oil reserves are exhausted

between above choices.... i feel after exhaution of its oil reserves is incorrect in (A) since i dont find any mistake in the with the intention usage.

A, D out "Its" is ambigous ... It can be "special fund" or "Alaska"
B,E out "They" has no referent.
C is my pick
