It should be C ...How is it B? How come "Challenges which includes" be correct? Or is it that the presentation included 'the threat....' ?Please someone clarify

Please correct me if I am wrong here:

Basic split i could see between Sales For and Sales Of. As per my understanding, Sales Of is correct, so A, C and E are out.
Between B and D - B has the S-V agreement issue. Challenges - Includes is wrong. So D is the answer.
