(A) there was exoneration and his freedom
(B) he was to be exonerated with freedom

Can someone explain to me the tense of this question and why the A and D are wrong?

Go with C. Being is (not a paassive case) here fully accepted.

A - there/it is/was normally bad in gmat.
B - passive
D - not parallel
E - bad construction
