B is the only parallel choice

D and E use gerunds to mean action... a NO-NO on GMAT... I've talked about gerunds many times, so if you'd like you can find it in one of my posts.

Clear winner B

"Aim to" is idiomatic.

Problem with D is the "so as to " structure. the correct structure is So X as to B.

"aim to" is idiomatic.

Not only is D ungrammatical as Jay explained, but it is stated in the dreaded passive voice.
