On the contrary I think that we should use the adverb "flatly" to describe the verb pack. How could most clothing be packet? - flatly. So we can eliminate B and D.
A - is awkard, in my opinion, doesn't sound right in my ears
E - confuses me because of that "as", which I think has the meaning of "because, for", but elaborate clothing facilities were unnecessary because the clothing could be packed in a more efficient way.
So I think C is correct.

B + D eliminated as adjective (flat) cannot modify the verb – pack.E , eliminated to change the meaning of the sentence.C. Eliminated , because with and ( conjunction ) we are introducing a clause. A clause should have a a clear subject and predicate. A is my choice.

The key issue above is Flat VS Flatley. Thinking about this logically, clothes are packed Flat, not flatley. It describes the clothing after it has been packed. Another similar term would be "In most Japanese homes, people would lie flat after dinner on the floor, and so it wasn't necessary to have bedrooms".

For the above reasons A,C,E are out. Between B and D, B for brevity (being no necessity is wordy compared to unecessary)

so i go for B

Flatly means strong or firmly and this usage changes the meaning – eliminate A, C and E

Ex: The argument was rejected flatly.

The first portion "could be packed" is in past tense and changing the tense “being” is not necessary – D out

(A) flatly, and so it was not necessary to have elaborate closet facilities [
(B) flat, and so elaborate closet facilities were unnecessary
(C) flatly, and so there was no necessity for elaborate closet facilities
(D) flat, there being no necessity for elaborate closet facilities
(E) flatly, as no elaborate closet facilities were necessary
