I will go with A. The verb attempt can only take an infitive as verbal direct object. The sentence is fine as it is.

my Answer is A . As the sentence starts with An attempt , hence it requires to here .

Also the verb tense is past tense is required here as past participle is used in non underlined portion of the text to give correct sequence of events
