the sentence def. requires "that" for continuation, so elim A and D.

B and C seems to make the sentence construction awkward.

E maintains parallelism, pronoun and overall seems like the best choice.

A. and her lobbying for wage and hour reform was persistent,
B. and lobbying for wage and hour reform was persistent, so that
C. her lobbying for wage and hour reform persistent, that
D. lobbying for wage and hour reform was so persistent,
E. so persistent her lobbying for wage and hour reform, that

It has to be between B and E and both need "and" at the start of the sentences.

B is the best choice among B and E. E is wrong because it is missing "was".

so persistent was her lobbying for wage and hour reform

it is E.
THis is the best choice among others. But it would be perfect if there were "AND". I think source is SETs [1-30]. and OE is also E.

OA is E, but I think for E "and' is required before so persistent.

'E' is the best.

So X, so Y, that is idiomatic and parallel.
