I will choose "intending" over because the correct idion is "with the intention of" instead of "with the intent of".


I guess (C)

Idiom is 'intent to'. B, D and E list 'intent of' and 'intent that'. So, eliminate B, D and E.

Between A and D, eliminate D, because D uses "could be" which is not strong enough to portray some one's intentions.

I pick A

only A is clear.

B - "intent of others" is wrong

C - it's not clear what "them" stand for

D - "with the intent of " should be replaced by "with the intent that" .

E - "their" is not clear.

only A remains..

"with" seems incorrect with the comma splice.

C) is not clear.

A seems to be the best
