POE
1. to increase is better than for increasing. Eliminate D & E
2. Option B there is change in meaning
3. Option A I suspect about use of they. It is ambiguous. The pharmaceutical companies or new strategies
4. IMO C

A. to increase the number of new drugs in their development pipelines in that they will create
"In that they" sounds funny to me

C. to increase the number of new drugs in their development pipelines by creating
Good

D. for increasing the number of new drugs in their development pipelines, and creating
", and creating" -> changes the meaning

"in the creation of" -> sounds strange to me

The pharmaceutical companies have announced new strategies to increase the number of new drugs in their development pipelines in that they will create strategic partnerships with small biotechnology firms.

A. to increase the number of new drugs in their development pipelines in that they will create -> "their" refers back to "The pharmaceutical companies" and they refers back to "The pharmaceutical companies". If we read it now, "...to increase the number of new drugs in The pharmaceutical companies' development pipelines in that The pharmaceutical companies will create..." It doesn't make sense. Incorrect

B. to increase in their development pipelines the number of new drugs by the creation of ->Incorrect. we are not talking about increase in companies' development pipelines.

C. to increase the number of new drugs in their development pipelines by creating -> It is precise. let's keep it.

D. for increasing the number of new drugs in their development pipelines, and creating -> now, meaning is changed. we have increasing and creating makes different strategies.

E. for increasing the number of new development pipeline drugs in the creation of -> we have meaning changed again "the number of new development pipeline drugs". Incorrect.

So, I think C. :)
