A it is
B and C are out because "were" is required to link the verb to the "products" which were never sold.
D is wrong because the repetition of "products" after a relative clause (after the comma) is not required
E is also wrong for the same reason; "they" is not needed

Agree with A.

Getrid of evrything after the comma after "that"
and you get the following sentence.
substantial costs for creating products that never were sold.

A is right. "never were sold" sounds funny. it should be "were never sold". :?
