I would have chosen D on the exam. I think E's "do" can be ellipsed and kept short as in D. "will" is necessary for futurity.

between d and e I prefer E. I would prefer maintain the 'do' as we are talking about actions and this word defines the action.

By the way, whats the OA ?

My choice is E

I would go for D.
As it sounds gramatically correct to me.

Paul, Krish: how did you eliminated A?

D, same reason as Paul.

On eliminating A, I guess
"I reached office about the same time as Paul did"
is more idiomatic than
"I reached office about the same time that Paul did"

D. more idiomatic "about the same ... as"

In its most recent approach, the comet Crommelin
passed the Earth at about the same distance and in about the same position, some 25 degrees above the
horizon, as will Halley's comet pass the next time
it appears.
