A. it might have been expected for it to be provided by the district authorities.
B. it might have been expected to be provided by the district authorities. 'it' correctly refers back to 'major share of funding'
C. it might have been expected that it should be provided by the district authorities.
D. it's funding might have been expected to be provided for by the district authorities. here 'it' is referring to museum- wrong
E. there might have been an expectation that it would be provided by the district authorities.

Hi,

Is there any grammatical mistake in C or is B more preferable for its concision?

Please explain as to why D is incorrect? And why can't "it" in B refer to museum?

I originally choose D as well... But it seems like "it's funding" and "provided for" may be redundant as they both refer to the same thing. Even though "provide for" is the correct idiom, it kinda feels like that it doesn't belong in that sentence.

Please let me know what you think

IMHO "it" is ambiguous in B while the usage of "it" is crystal clear in option D. I am awaiting expert's reply; maybe he/she will be able to give a better insight.
