IMO A.
According to me A is better than other choices.
B - Awkward and invalid pronoun reference
C - Altered intent and awkward usage
D - Awkward with multiple that in the statement
E - This option does not have any grammatical problem. But, it alters the intent of the passage.

Please let us know the OA.

A is best among all options...
D and E are definitely awkward.
In B and C "it" has no logical referent
