MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



Is someone is doing x doing y, for doing y or to do y? What would you normally say? If you say doing x doing y or doing x for doing y, it implies a sequence, and lacks the element of causation that is necessary for this sentence. You want to use the infinitive form because it expresses causation. Someone is doing x (because) to do y. The inspectors are reviewing the weapons to do something. Choice E is the correct answer.
