I think C.

Points:
1. "related" is implicit in the end. This is called Ellipsis
2. to modify "related" we need an adverb "distantly". A and E out.
3. B and D are unnecessarily wordy

C it should be.
' financially related to ' requires ' distantly '.
Or it could have been :
' a financial relationship to them ' ......' however distant '

Wow, great SC! I also fell for the A/E trap, but have been convinced as to why the answer should be (C). distantly+related

Mafia is singular. Its a group of people.
E.g. The Mafia is in town.

C

He ran slowly, we slept peacefully, as you drank merrily. A is related to B distantly (not distant). A and E out.

B: "even distantly" can only be used interrogatively or in negation. e.g. Are you even distantly related to me?
You are not even distantly related to me.

so B is out

D wordy compared to C
