IMO B.

The sentence talks about a past event so we need past tense in the underline portion. So, option A, C and D are out. Out of B and E, E is wrong because it changes the meaning, the correct usage should be 'rely on' and not 'rely for'. Hence, option B is the correct choice.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



You need to have appropriate tense agreement. ‘Can’ is incorrect because it is in the present tense. That leaves you with choices B and E as possible answers. You rely on something, not for something. Choice B is the correct answer.
