The correct idiom is = reversion to sth.
B is Incorrect => back is superfluous and wordy
C is incorrect => back is superfluous and wordy and also at the end we need staples so that it can connect well with examples mentioned in the sentence.
D is Incorrect => reversion to raise incorrect use of idiom. Infinitive is not expected after reversion.
E is Incorrect => again incorrect idiom.
