In C - profit went to pay higher taxes is awkward. I think E is the right answer.

Incorrect pronoun uage(they, their) A,B,D are eliminated

Between C and E, C brings out the clarity in thought.
The business made profit overseas but it was paying higher taxes there and hence nullified the profits while losses in North America effectively brought losses to the company

Hi,

A straight C in under a minute.

a) where much of their profits were used for paying higher taxes, while continuing-"their" is wrong for the comany which is singular.Incorrect.

b) where much of their profit went to pay higher taxes, as they continued-"their" is wrong for the comany which is singular.Incorrect.

c) where much of its profit went to pay higher taxes, while it continued-Correct

d) with much of their profits going to pay higher taxes, while continuing-"their" is wrong for the comany which is singular.Incorrect.

e) with much of the profit used for paying higher taxes, as it continued-"where was much of the profit used?" also "as" suggests a reason whereas we need a contrast-incorrect.
