Oberlin College in Ohio was a renegade institution //at its 1833 founding for deciding to accept// both men and women as students.

The main intent or purpose of this sentence is to say that the college was a renegade institution because at its founding, it decided to accept both men and women as students.

(A) at its 1833 founding for deciding to accept : This shows it was already a renegade institution at the time of its founding, doesn't depict the causal nature. At its 1833 founding is illogical

(B) for the decision at its 1833 founding to accept - at its 1833 founding is illogical

(C) when it was founded in 1833 for its decision to accept- shows it was a renegade institution when was founded.

(D) in deciding at its founding in 1833 to accept: demonstrates the causal nature. It was a renegade institution in deciding so and so. Correct.

(E) by deciding at its founding in 1833 on the acceptance of - wordy
