The sentence is trying to say early philosophers regarded someone's writing as a collection of cynical precepts for tyrants and later view that someone as a teacher of evil. We should keep the active voice. With that in mind, B and E are out.

D. Early 16th Century moralist philosophers, particularly in France and England, regarded Machiavelli’s The Prince to be a collection of cynical precepts for tyrants, and not until the 17th Century philosophers was the view of Machiavelli as a teacher of evil questioned. (Regarded...to be... is idiomatically incorrect)
