Is it option B?
In A and D,'casted' is not the correct past form of 'cast'.
In C,two past perfect have been used in succession.
In E,'would be' seems incorrect.

Option D. IMO.

As it has perfect sequence of tense , had -- in preceding clause , followed by a simple past tense.

I chose D - I can't understand the use of the verb cast in present simple while the sequence is in the past

While 'cast' is more common, 'cast' and 'casted' are both correct past tenses of 'cast', so answers B and D are both correct here. I'm not sure where this question is from, but it's not a good question.
