Option A - incorrect
This adds pronouns 'that' and 'him' which is not so necessary in the sentence. Hence, it makes the sentence seem exaggerated and not explicit enough.

Option B - incorrect
Same issue as option A above. The pronoun 'that' and 'him' used in the sentence to modify the subject is not necessary.

Option C - incorrect
The answer choice uses the wrong verb form 'was.' The action in the sentence has not been performed, but this option claimed it has happened.

Option D - correct
'In order to' is a subordinating conjunction used to explain the 'why' of an action. In this option, it uses this modifier to answer why the participants were instructed to bring chairs to the back of the auditorium.

Option E - incorrect
Using 'as well as' in a sentence means that one of the ways something can be done or achieved as related to the content is explained. Therefore, this context doesn't go along with the intended meaning of the sentence.
