In my opinion, correct answer is C.

A is wrong because the description “know for his autocratic...” must be immediately followed by what is being described, which in this case is Robert Moses.

B is wrong because the description “known for his autocratic” and the object being described “Robert Moses” are apart.

C - correct

D is not only worded in a very awkward manner, but also grammatically incorrect (were instead of was)

E is wrong because it changes de meaning of the original sentence. The original sentence never said that those characteristics helped him shape...

Again, I could be wrong. Hope it helps.
