Two independent clauses , 1) Mr. Grant became the CEO of the company
2) he had not patience with non successful businesses. .................. errors ' had not' , 'non-successful

here option c) seems to be correct
but I feel instead of didnt have , doesnt have will make more sense OR it can be re written as
he has no patience with unsuccessful business

Hello,

Although C seems to sound valid, i see the problem that it doesn't define timeline really well. E on the other hand does it even though it changes meaning a little bit. But grammer comes first, doesn't it?

-hadn't had patience- would have worked if we did actually wanted to display past behavior.

Thank you.
