I went with D.

The sentence has a modifier error where 'it' is used wrongly.
It is now either D or E.
The future perfect 'will have proposed' is incorrectly used here.
Thus, D.

Who is Hoping......? Answer to this question has be a NOUN. Noun is present only in option D & E.

Since the question is testing MOOD, only option D fits the bill.

Hence answer is D
