A. which keep
B. to keep
C. that keep
D. which kept
E. in order to keep

B, C close.

B wins as "they have developed...to <>."
is more appropriate than "they have developed ...that<>"

Please correct me if I am wrong.

I first selected the choice "to keep" , but as there is no difference in the meaning between "to keep" and "in order to keep", I rejected both of them(as two choices can not be correct at the same time).

Why choice B is correct while choice E is incorrect?

B expresses the same idea with fewer number of words and is hence better.
