Interesting question. Between C and E for me. C is subjunctive while E is past perfect. I'd go for C - as we are dealing in hypothetical.

C.

This is an example of "If I were, I would" case, only backwards:

"income that would be generated if a portion of the capital were invested in another form."

I am daring to go here for B.

Reason....museums dont do this...so these clauses need to have element of "possibility" which I think is captured by "would have been"

I guess I have to just wait to see why my reasoning is wrong...so who wants to explain that to me first.
