Correct idiom is : From X to Y, where X and Y are parallel elements.

The literary world’s fascination for Mr. Micawber, Charles Dickens’ famous character from David Copperfield, has been put down to everything from having an optimistic outlook, which was often without good reason to his staunch belief that ‘something would turn up’.

(A) having an optimistic outlook, which was often without good reason
(B) having an optimistic outlook, which had often been without good reason,
(C) his optimistic outlook, for which there has often been no good reason,
(D) his optimistic outlook, having no good reason often,
(E) his optimistic outlook, which was often without good reason,

In A & B, the X and Y are not parallel.
In C & D, the modifiers are wrong.
In E, which clause correctly modifies outlook. E is the correct answer.
