Mahesh,

E seems to be passive. No?

"Making do without" looks awkward. No?

No D is active as it conveys action settlers did something.

E is passive.

The later part of the sentence remains same for both sentences.

Waw this is good one.

Didn't know making/make do is a proper idiom.

Making do without gmat club is hard.

OA is D. No OE is available is as this is from ETS paper test

I have been speaking English for a long time ,have never come across any1 using making do

Unfortunately for me D and E were the 1st 2 options I struck out
