https://gmatclub.com/forum/in-elucidati ... 03050.html, a similar but easier question.

In elucidating and ultimately decrying the various strains of nihilism endemic to his native Russia, the novelist Fyodor Dostoyevsky sought to edify the populace, to lead it away from the evil portended in a philosophy that denied all values.

A sought to edify the populace, to lead it away from
B sought to edify the populace leading them from
C sought in the edification of the populace to lead them away from
D sought in edifying the populace and leading it from
E sought to edify the populace in the leading of them from

[Reveal] Spoiler:
"it" refers to populace.
I am still unconvinced of OA.
It is true that “to edify” and “to lead” must parallel, and a commas between them is required.
Meaning is quite difficult to understand.
[Reveal] Spoiler: OA

B sought to edify the populace leading them from
C sought in the edification of the populace to lead them away from
D sought in edifying the populace and leading it from
E sought to edify the populace in the leading of them from


First difference that can be seen is the use of pronoun it and them

Populace is singular hence we need it.
B,C,E can be eliminated.
sought to is the correct idiom and hence A.
