A, B is wrong as "which" refers to children. I believe "which" need to refer to the understanding. C only satisfies.
What's the OA?

IMO, D

I think that "both of which" clarifies that she will pay not only the board for the children.

D seems the best bet.. but on second thoughts...
agreed verbally or verbally agreed?? Isn't agreed verbally appropriate??? Or is it something like verbally acts as an adverb modifying the verb agreed???

I go with B
"of school enrollment and room and board for the children" is a prepositional phrase. so ideally 'which' should modify costs... It does in B.
