The lobbyist behaved in a condescending and self-righteous manner, and as a result many senators were alienated.

A) The lobbyist behaved in a condescending and self-righteous manner, and as a result many senators were alienated. ------- and shouldn't be used as a connector for cause and effect relationship.

B) The lobbyist behaved in a condescending and self-righteous manner by which many senators were alienated.-the manner has the inherent property of alienating the senators all the time. Must be wrong

C) The lobbyist behaved in a condescending and self-righteous manner, alienating many senators. - nothing is fishy here

D) The lobbyist's condescendingly self-righteous manner resulted in the alienation of many senators.- the manners are not condescendingly righteous. It is both. Wrong.

E) The lobbyist behaved condescendingly and self-righteously, having alienated many senators. - having indicates that he first alienated them and then behaved in that manner. Chances the order
