E to suggest that

A.C.C., despite its press releases, is planning to acquire and subsume Cupric Thunder - this portion is an independent clause and we need a correct conjunction for the same.
Given options -
A like a suggestion of -
B like it is suggestive that -
C suggestive of - Conjuction missing
D as if to suggest - redundant with seems-
E to suggest that - Correct Choice

Seems to suggest is correct usage, hence answer must be (E), errors in other options highlighted...
