B it is

(A) tumbled, but not dramatically enough for giving - verb tense problem. Unidiomatic. WRONG

(B) tumbled, but not dramatically enough to give - clear consise, idiomatic. RIGHT

(C) tumbled, and not so dramatically as to have given - need 'but' to indicate a negation.WRONG.

(D) has tumbled, and not dramatically enough to give - need 'but' to indicate a negation.WRONG.

(E) has tumbled, but not so dramatically as to give - need 'but' to indicate a negation.WRONG.
