B??

edited for explaining my answer:

choice between tumbled and has tumbled. Simple past tense seems to be suitable here. so among three answers starting with tumbled A and B provide the contrast. out of these two the part
tumbled, but not dramatically enough to give
sounds correct idiomatically.

whats the answere ??

main issues :

1st issue) Parallelism of verb tense------>keyword - ''as'' ----> one of the functions of ''as'' ---> to describe events occurred at same time

confidence levels sagged <--------> market tumbled [sagged (non-underlined) and tumbled ----> in order to convey that both happened at same time ----> both should be in simple past, b'coz sagged is in simple past (non-underlined)] ; Also --- '' has tumbled'' -- means the action is still going on ----> this will be illogical b'coz as earlier said both actions ''sagged'' and ''tumbled'' occurred at the same time]

eliminates --- D,E

2nd issue) - idiom ---> ''enough to'' ----> eliminates A

C --- plainly awkward

B --- (according to me) is Right ans.
