Hi arun6765

Confused with second "it".

E) it has approached Warby Parker, an e-commerce eyeglass company, to help it design : 2nd "it" can refer to Warby parker or google.

+1 E.
Pronoun Ambiguity is not such a big thing on the GMAT. I think construction wise E looks the best.

A) it has approached Warby Parker, an e-commerce eyeglass company, to help it for designing--- For designing is wrong. We prefer to design in such cases

B) Warby Parker, an e-commerce eyeglass company, has been approached so that it can design--- Run ON

C) it has approached Warby Parker, an e-commerce eyeglass company, to design--Awkward. No Verb

D) Warby Parker, an e-commerce eyeglass company, has been approached to design-- Run On

E) it has approached Warby Parker, an e-commerce eyeglass company, to help it design-- Looks fine

A) it has approached Warby Parker, an e-commerce eyeglass company, to help it for designing
B) Warby Parker, an e-commerce eyeglass company, has been approached so that it can design : Active voice is preferred.Also after the dependent clause, we need Google as subject for the independent clause.
C) it has approached Warby Parker, an e-commerce eyeglass company, to design : Meaning error: It means that WP is going to design.But original sentence says WP is going to help Gooogle.
D) Warby Parker, an e-commerce eyeglass company, has been approached to design : Same error as in B
E) it has approached Warby Parker, an e-commerce eyeglass company, to help it design

Now, between A & E, I choose E as 'to help it design' is clear in meaning if compared with 'to help it for designing'.

The difference lies in the meaning. Google needs help from Warby Parker. C means that Warby Parker will design it alone.
