IMO E.
Correct idiom is aim at. so answer choices are close to D or E. Use parallelism new rules that x and that y. Hence E.

B looks good.
aim to ... identify and .. seat




Aim to vs Aim at Aim to (idiom)

Meaning - Try or intend to do something.

e.g : We aim to please our customers, or She aims to fly to California.

Correct usage: aim to + verb


Aim at (idiom)

Meaning - Direct a missile or criticism at something or someone; to plan, intend or to have as one's purpose

e.g: In his last speech the President took aim at the opposition leader.
He aims at finishing tomorrow.

Correct usage: aim at + noun

IMO B.

In A a second pronoun is redundant.
E is not ||
