D for me.

first I think the right construction is "believed that +ing"
-> eliminate A, C and E

Then Parliament's belief is a supposition -> it would reward...
-> eliminate B

D :)

I kicked out A, B, E because of "it"
Not sure about C, D.

C sounds better to me.

(A) to do it rewards
(B) doing it rewards
(C) to do this would reward
(D) doing so would reward
(E) to do it would reward


it is mainly about using SO or IT. here D is the right answer.
it is a past tense sentence so A and B are out.
in C THIS spoils the meaning
in D perfect
in E again, IT spoils all

D

"..do this" "..do it" etc. are all grammatically unsound. "..do so" and option D are correct!

(A) to do it rewards (Eliminate because unsound meaning of "to do" and "it")
(B) doing it rewards (Eliminate : "it" is unclear)
(C) to do this would reward (Eliminate : "to do" and "this")
(D) doing so would reward (Pick this one!)
(E) to do it would reward (Eliminate : "to do")

(A) to do it rewards ( “it” has no clear referent - eliminate it)
(B) doing it rewards ( “it” has no clear referent - eliminate it)
(C) to do this would reward ( “this” has no clear referent - eliminate it)
(D) doing so would reward ( adverb “so” clearly referring the verb “accord” – Hold it)
(E) to do it would reward ( “it” has no clear referent - eliminate it)

Answer: D
