I guess the answer is B

A,C,E are wrong because they are awkward..

Between B and D, B prevails.

Fitting X into Y is the correct idiom.

A. that of fitting what people want to see into the time they have available to see it in
B. fitting what people want to see into the time they have available
C. that of fitting what people want to see in the time which they have available
D. fitting what people want to see in the time they have available for seeing
E. the need to fit what people want to see into the available time for seeing

A - "it" is ambiguous and the sentence is awkward
B - Seems right - correct
C - problem....is that of fitting - very awkward
D - available for seeing - redundant
E - problem is the need - awkward - the need is not the problem - fulfilling that need is the problem - the right word is fitting

One of the perennial problems of the tourist industry is that of fitting what people want to see into the time they have available to see it in.

A. that of fitting what people want to see into the time they have available to see it in

--> that of is awkward. see is redundant. it is ambiguous. Ending a sentence with a preposition is not good according to mikemcgarry.

B. fitting what people want to see into the time they have available

--> no issues --> correct.

C. that of fitting what people want to see in the time which they have available

--> that of is awkward. There should be comma (,) before relative pronoun which.

D. fitting what people want to see in the time they have available for seeing

--> for seeing is redundant.

E. the need to fit what people want to see into the available time for seeing

--> One of the perennial problems can not be the need. for seeing is redundant.

Doesn't the phrase 'into the time' change the meaning of the sentence. In my humble opinion, it should be 'see in the time' as ' see into the time' would mean seeing in the time, as in looking in the time. Please explain.
