Incorrect use of which, overturning will be preferred. B,C,D.

B doesn't make sense and c is too wordy.

D

C is wrong because "mental state internally" detracts from what the author intended to say. Look at the original sentence. The author wants to describe the internal mental state, not mental state inside xxx.

+1 D

"which" modifies mental state. We need a participle modifier to modify the main clause.
We are talking about the INTERNAL mental state, not about an action.

Always remember adj form is preferred over adverb form! internal mental state is preferred over mental state internally!
