E. The developments of most successful inventors, which had been inspired by necessity, were unlike the first soft contact lens that was created by Czech inventor Otto Wichterle, who made a fortune from human vanity.


Answer is C:

A. Otto Wichterle, the Czech inventor who created the first soft contact lens, was not like most successful inventors due to his making a fortune from human vanity instead of being inspired by necessity.

due to his making a fortune sounds awkward, so elimate this choice

B. The Czech inventor Otto Wichterle, who was not like other inventors' developments that were inspired by necessity, made his fortune from human vanity instead by creating the first soft contact lens.

Here Czech inventor Otto Wichterle is being compared with other inventors' developments, so this is eliminated

C. Unlike most successful inventors, whose developments were inspired by necessity, Otto Wichterle, the Czech inventor who created the first soft contact lens, made a fortune from human vanity.

comparison is between, inventors and Otto Wichterle, so makes sense and also the modifierthe (Czech inventor who created the first soft contact lens, made a fortune from human vanity) is modifying Otto Wichterle.

D. The first soft contact lens, which was created by Czech inventor Otto Wichterle, who made a fortune from human vanity, was unlike most successful inventors whose developments were inspired by necessity.

Here contact lens is compared with successful inventors, so does not make sense. D is gone

E. The developments of most successful inventors, which had been inspired by necessity, were unlike the first soft contact lens that was created by Czech inventor Otto Wichterle, who made a fortune from human vanity.

is we remove the modifier,( which had been inspired by necessity), sentence would read as:
The developments of most successful inventors..were unlike the first soft contact lens, illogical so eiminate E

C is the best answer
