nice one.
In B and C - 'back' is redundant.
In E - 'into' is incorrect.

Comes down to A vs D.
A is correct because it uses "raising" which is a noun and is required here to indicate the future tense.

A

any answer with "back" is redundant. also "into" is incorrect
that left us with A and D, D is incorrect, we will need a noun substitute after "to".
