A..
B and D are rules out because of they. among A, C and E fix the verb problem but E uses for with taken which seems unidiomatic. In C, resulting needs from, which is not. A fulfills the subjunctive/conditional requirement. SO A is the answer.

OA is 'A'

How to refute 'E'? I was stuck between 'A' and 'E' and finally picked 'E'. Can you explain 'subjunctive/conditional' requirement so I don't repeat the same mistake.

That eliminates C, D and E.

B is clearly wrong.
