Often, when we begin a sentence with "as," it functions like a conjunction, meaning "at the same time" or "because." For example:

    "As Tim prepared to make to toast in the bathtub, his wife dialed the paramedics."

Here, "as" seems to convey the notion of "at the same time," and it connects the two clauses.

Now consider the following:

    "As Tim prepared to make to toast in the bathtub, with the result that his wife dialed the paramedics."

Notice that both "as" and "with the result" are functioning like connectors here. That's no good - two clauses should only have one connector. We see the exact same problem in (B).

The word "as" doesn't appear in (E). Because we only have a single connector, (E) corrects the problem and is our winner.

I hope that helps!
