"C" it should be

"..argue that...and that..."
"imperative to"

Also, "C" is the simplest cause & effect relationship, compared to "A", "B" & "E"

A. that reform of the tort system is imperative for bringing malpractice insurance premiums

C. that reform of the tort system is imperative to bring malpractice insurance premiums

D. reform of the tort system is necessary in bringing malpractice insurance premiums

E. the tort system needs to be reformed so that malpractice insurance premiums are brought

the parallel structure is : has argued that ........and that ...........
Thus, A and B and C remain.
B is eliminated becoz "if" is usually used to express conditions.
Between A and C, C is preferred with the use of " to bring".
C it is.
