KUDOS
it seems a poorly written question

SC : A delegation of 60 farmers called on the chief minister so as to plead for revival of the
benefit scheme together with the revised compensation package offered by the
government and
the chief minister has very graciously conceded their request----------->"delegation" can never go with "their"

also D is wrong for following reason
D says: chief minister and pleaded for revival of the benefit scheme together
with the revised compensation package offered by the government
and
-------------->there is no need for parallelism between "called" and "pleaded" .
