A use of that is wrong it should be to

Correct idiom is "allow X to Y". Hence eliminate A and B.

In C, the sentence will be:
Judge Roesmarie’s decision was released post-independence day, allowing the city of Detroit to file for bankruptcy on grounds of an organization’s constitutional rights, the 10,000 current city workers and the 20,000 retired workers found that their pensions, earlier thought to have been as secure as treasury bonds, were cut in half.

The independent clause "the 10,000 current city workers..." has no conjunction with the previous. Hence, this sentence is fragment.

In E, the first clause lacks of main verb.

D is correct.

In option D, is the use of 'because of correct' ?
shouldn't it rather be because instead of because of?
Experts, please comment
