hello, you can find the full explanation, and more helps of verbal experts from Magoosh blob. Here is the link, https://magoosh.com/gmat/2013/gmat-sent ... struction/

Senator Baxter's suggestion of the United States being able to cut all dependence on foreign oil by 2025 raised great controversy in the press.

C that the United States can cut all dependence on foreign oil by 2025 has raised great controversy in the press -> direct voice

E which has raised great controversy in the press is that the United States will be able to cut all dependence on foreign oil by 2025 => "which" wrongly modifies suggestion. Also, present perfect is inappropriate; simple tense is better here. "is that..." changes the meaning.
