the answer should be E
them is ambiguous in A and B
and pronoun it has no clear antecedent in option C and D so out also correct idiom is enable+person/thing+to
left with E has a separate verb + another action .

I feel like (D) could be the right answer - "decided" and "enabled" are parallel and "it" refers to the corporation... Help?
