Will go with D.
Remember seeing this one before.
I guess "made up for" is the correct usage.

He made up for his mistakes by apologizing.

yeah ... looks like B to me ... crisp and direct ... not sure whether to go for "what" or "whatever", but still B (what) looked better here... he in E looks redundant ...also "his", further in the sentence already makes the sentence clear ... thus no need to repeat he ..
Any more takers??

Buzz, don't you think (D) is ambiguous and passive? E flows a little cleaner in the active voice...

The focus has to be "He". In E we can see that. E is my choice.

This SC had me thoughtless at first instance.
Just picked the choice for the familiar use of "made up for" :oops: .
E looked good but then I think it misses a comma before second he. :roll:

Between B and D chose D first. I guess, would have got it wrong on exam day by choosing D....

After taking a good look, i feel that "for" is redundant in D. hence B should be the answer.

Late But D.

I like whatever much better than what.

Among C, D and E...

C is having tense problem.
E got he at the end and So picked D.
