From Kaplan:

(A) ignorant of the crime, having
(B) ignorantly of the crime, with
(C) ignorance of the crime, since
(D) ignorance of the crime, for
(E) to have ignorance of the crime, since

This one is for a rare idiom.

i'd go with D.
I believe the idiom is "professed ignorance" and "since fear that" does not sound right. "for fear that" sounds like the right idiom there.

Same here.. It should be D.

You professed ignorance of the crime.

A noun form(ignorance) is more appropriate than and adjective form (ignorant).

Since has two meanings and is therefore less preferred to "for" in this case.

According to question:
ans: D
because "ignorant" is adjective and "ignorance" is noun form and "for" at the end is more apt and less ambiguous in comparison to other options.

kindly let us know the answer and also the difficulty level
