I think the correct answer is C. Don't pick D as there is a "Ing " i.e exhausting.

Guys,

Ans is C.

A is wrong for ambigous "its". C is unambigously says what is intended in the main sentence.
One more reason for why A is wrong: read it as "Alaska does smth with the intention to sustain smth" - guys sorry but it is a completely perfect bullsh*t. Alaska is a piece of land.
Ask yourself can a piece of land have intentions??!

I agree. I'd say D is wrong because of the above reason. It has a meaning issue! Alaska can't exhaust its oil reserve.

The answer is C. Before going into the explanation consider the following example of official GMAT paper test

Asset allocators create portfolios, often in the form of mutual funds, with the intention to turn in good results in both “bull” and “bear” markets.

(A) with the intention
(B) the intention of which is
(C) intended
(D) and intending
(E) so intended as

Here the ans is C. coz it clearly refers to the what the portfolios are created for. They are created for turning in good results.

Whereas, "with the intention" shifts the referent to the Asset allocators, thereby distorting the intended meaning.

The same logic can be extended to the discussed question.

Hope it helps. Kudos if you like.

Sorry for asking but I cannot completely get your idea. "Alaska is a piece of land. Ask yourself can a piece of land have intentions??!"
It seems that "Alaska" here definitely refers to people in charge/administrative body of the state who may deposit the state's profit from the sale...
Ask yourself can a piece of land deposit its money???

Thanks.
