(C) awkward sentence
(D) same as B
(E) 'with it instead continuing' is awkward

A is best.

B is the correct one....
A and C are in Past perfect (PP) tense, "had anticipated", which is wrong.
we need simple past not PP. C and D are easily ruled out.

So left with B, which is correct.

Tricky but this is what I thought.

A - Correct.
B,D - Incorrect idiom... It should be 'rather than.....'
C - too long. '.....and instead to continue ....'
E - Incorrect.

Hence A.
