Picked A.

( had got this wrong earlier,so might get it wrong now as well).

Neways,
D and E - don't use a past tense
B - ambiguous "it"

Between C and A , picked A as C has 'would' twice.

This one's a mind bender.

I am inclined to pick D, as it is the shortest, but D seems to mangle the tense. A seems to be better than the other choices, as it maintains the tense, but I am not sure if "and been quite wrong" is correct.

When in doubt go for the shorter one. D for me.

A should be it.

Read it like
Would have guessed and would have been wrong.

Thank you Ritesh,

Would have guessed and would have been wrong makes sense. A has to be the answer
