My choice is A.

Everything before the word "mean" should either be a noun or a noun phrase (concept). B has this. The tense problem is that he should win before having the loyalty of the people. Using "had" takes us back even before he won which I feel is inapropriate. The answer may very well be B.

I think the error made by A is more serious than that made by B

My vote is for C
B and E are wrong as both use 'had'. that signals a completed action.
D is wrong as it has redundant 'it'
So between A and C I vote for C. 'did not mean' will need 'it'

A and B both use the right choice of tense here. the difference here is in the use of "the fact / just ". OA is B, but i don't find anything wrong with A.

A lacks a clear subject for "did not mean". I would not say that "Just because.. occupied.." is a subject. A'd prefer a noun.
B has "fact" that "did not mean"
