I would go with D

A B C seem to have pronoun errors..

D seems the most logical one.

I say D simply because the others have "it" in them.

while i was doing this question, ididn't noticed that "seemingly" is needed here,an adverb, instead of seeming so it is between d and e.
and i think Dis idomatically correct.
also OA is D

Bumping an old thread :) , nice question

(A) believing it a seeming permanent accommodation rather than a temporary expedient for what many observers thought was
Seeming( adjective) incorrectly modifies the noun accommodation, whereas it actually should modify the adjective permanent. To do so, seeming should be changed to adverb seemingly..

(B) believing it a seeming permanent accommodation instead of a temporary expedient for what many observers thought was
Same as A,

(C) believing that it was not a temporary expedient but a seeming permanent accommodation to what many observers thought of as a
same as A, moreover, thought of as a shows redundancy, thought was is concise.

(D) not as a temporary expedient but as a seemingly permanent accommodation to what many observers thought was CORRECT

(E) not as a temporary expedient but believing it a seemingly permanent accommodation for what many observers thought
parallelism error, the highlighted parts are not parallel

Answer is correct, below is my explanation;

352. In 1933 the rubber, clothing, and shipbuilding industries put into effect a six-hour workday, believing it a seeming permanent accommodation rather than a temporary expedient for what many observers thought was an economy made overproductive by advances in technology.
(A) believingit a seeming permanent accommodation rather than a temporary expedient for what many observers thought was
(B) believing it a seeming permanent accommodation instead of a temporary expedient for what many observers thought was
(C) believing that it was not a temporary expedient but aseeming permanent accommodation to what many observers thought of as a
(D) not as a temporary expedient but as a seemingly permanent accommodation to what many observers thought was
(E) not as a temporary expedient but believing it a seemingly permanent accommodation for what many observers thought

So, only D has used only one expression i.e. seeminngly.. (seeming and believing together in sentence makes it redundant.)
