(C) INCORRECT... the construction is awkward
(D) INCORRECT... same as (C)
(E) INCORRECT... passive construction is not required.

Between (A) and (B),
IMHO,infinitive is more proper to show the intention.Hence (B)

Please correct me if anything is wrong.
Thanks

in the pattern
main clause+ to do
to do shows a future action done by subject of main clause.
so
in choice B, the board perform the action of "stimulate". this is logic.

"for doing" is used to show a purpose of a noun, not a clause.
the pen for writing is mine.

in phrase "for doing", doing refers to a general action not belonging to any specific noun in the sentence
compare
I learn gmat to take MBA.
this means I learn gmat so that I take an MBA. this is logic.

I learn gmat for taking an MBA

taking dose not refer to "I" , taking refers to general action of anybody.
so, I can understand that

I learn gmat so that anybody take an MBA. this is not logic.

gmat test to do/doing a lot. and this is a hard point.
