Actually this is not an easy SC

Here is the desired structure

The british abandoned(verb) the obligations of the Balfour declaration(direct object)

then comes how ( use "by" ) or why (use "to")?
(adverbial phrase follows - no verbs should be present here )
by carving Transjordan out of the mandate territory, and ceding it + ....

(A) passive voice + presence of verb
(B) to have it ceded - would be correct
(D) wrong tense and also presence of verb
(E) presence of verb
