B is passive and a bit stilted.

Jumping on the (E) train.

What is OA on this one?

I think E is awkwardly structured and i am skeptical about the tense too. I will go with C.

I would have gone with C on exam day..though B sounds pretty close.. I am not able to pin point why C sounds better to me..but B somehow seems to convey the meaning the that the dissipation instead of being prevented by the boundaries is being aided by them.
