b & d are out for me, as the 'has' seems unnecessary. I'm conflicted between c & e, treading more towards c. What's the OA.

Thanks.

B and D begin with "has"..... incorrect

C uses " to such an end" ....... not proper

between A and E, "to do it" or "to that end".....

i couldnt decide, but on the real test, i would have chosen E. Somehow it sounds better to me

I am for A because other options does not sound good.

Schlieman determined at the age of seven to find the site of ancient Troy and devoted his subsequent career to do it

a)devoted his subsequent career to do it do it is almost always wrong.It's unidiomatic
b) has devoted his subsequent career to do that. Not parallel - tense error
c) devoted his subsequent career to such an end. Awkward
d) has devoted his subsequent career for that. Not parallel - tense error

e) devoted his subsequent career to that end. Looks good
