"not... denied" is prefer over "undeniable" in order to stress the negative

Also the "have attempted to do so" here fits only with cannot be denied I think. E should be the answer.. OA?

Notice that the latter part of the sentence has "attempted to do" in it. Well, that must refer back to something in the first part of the sentence. "To do" has to refer back to a verb form. Since "undeniable" is not a verb form, that can't be the correct answer.
