The easiest decision point is the presence/absence of "on" in the second part of the sentence...

A....to denote a personality type in which the primary focus of the individual rests on objective criteria, defined as people, places, or things external to the individual, rather than on subjective ones.

E.... to denote a personality type with a primary focus on objective criteria, defined as people, places, or things external to the individual, rather than a subjective one

cheers !!

Psychologist Carl Jung used the term “extrovert” to denote a personality type in which the primary focus of the individual rests on objective criteria, defined as people, places, or things external to the individual, rather than on subjective ones.

The sentence talks about the psychologist who used the term "extrovert" to denote (shows intention) a personality type in which the primary focus OF THE INDIVIDUAL rests ON something RATHER THAN ON something else.


Subject verb:
1) Psychologist (S)..............Used (V)
2) Primary focus (S) ..............rests (V)

Tense: The sentence talks about a fact that is true even today. Therefore simple present tense (rests) shows that it is true even today. Simple past tense (used) shows that the action is over and is in the past. There are no sequences of events in this sentence.

Modifiers:
1) in which ..............refers to the personality type

Parallelism:
1) on X rather than on Y


A. to denote a personality type in which the primary focus of the individual rests on objective criteria, defined as people, places, or things external to the individual, rather than on subjective ones
INCORRECT

B. denoting a personality type in which the primary focus of the individual rests on objective criteria, defined as people, places, or things external to the individual, rather than on subjective ones
DENOTING (VERB-ING) FAILS TO SHOW HIS INTENTION AS TO WHY HE USED THAT TERM.

C. to denote a personality type in whom the primary focus of the individual rests on objective criteria, defined as people, places, or things external to the individual, rather than subjective ones
INCORRECT. Parallelism error and type in whom. I am not really sure this makes sense.

D. to denote a personality type that has as its focus objective criteria, defined to be people, places, or things external to the individual, rather than subjective ones
INCORRECT. Parallelism error and modifier error which changes the meaning.

E. to denote a personality type with a primary focus on objective criteria, defined as people, places, or things external to the individual, rather than a subjective one.

INCORRECT. Same errors as in D.
