(C) using the companiesâ€™ earnings and profiting

(E) with the companiesâ€™ earnings and to profit[/quote]

B,C,D are out becuse the sentence say hoping to pay ,,,,hoping to profit,,,,,,,thus profiting is wrong
ok im up with A and E,
A is out becuse it says company's which mean just 1 company!!!!!

thus E is best

investor hope to pay off the debt and to profit.. is parallel. C and D are out.

hoping to pay off with the companie's earning is correct. 'by using' is not as concise.

E it is.

idiom. Pay off with something, not pay off using something.
