C it is..

(A) quota with no commitment to minority hiring and eventually promoting
- OUT need noun parallel to hiring... promotion is better.

- OUT seems to indicate the quota has no commitment
(C) quota and did not reflect a commitment to minority hiring and eventual promotion

(D) quota, not reflecting a commitment to minority hiring and eventual promotion
- reflecting is not parallel to fill, could use to reflect.. again sentence will be weird...
(E) quota, not one that reflected that minority hiring and eventual promotion was a commitment
