    For Ryu, success in his solar-energy business was largely a matter of the attraction of sufficient venture capital; in addition to holding onto his expert staff, despite other firms' attempts to lure them away.

    A) a matter of the attraction of sufficient venture capital; in addition to holding onto his expert staff,
    B) an issue of attracting sufficient venture capital; in addition, holding onto his expert staff,
    C) a matter of attracting sufficient venture capital, as well as holding onto his expert staff
    D) for him to attract sufficient venture capital, and to retain his expert staff
    E) a matter of him attracting sufficient venture capital, as well as to retain his expert staff,

    A semi-colon must serve to connect two complete sentences.
    In A and B, the semi-colon is not followed by a complete sentence.
    Eliminate A and B.

    D: For Ryo, success was largely...for him
    Here, the phrases in red are redundant.
    Eliminate D.

    E: success was largely a matter of him
    This meaning is nonsensical.
    A PERSON cannot constitute a MATTER.
    Eliminate E.

    The correct answer is C.
