Can someone explain why not D?

Not a rule but generally do not start a sentence with "Due to" If you do it is an adjective but if it comes some where in the middle of the sentence then it would be a prepositional phrase

D. Due to plunging computer chip prices from an oversupply

The "... chips has sent..." is present perfect, an action that continues from the past and still is going on today. "... manufacturer has announced..." structured well!
