I'll go with D.

A - SV problem: anyone - they
B - SV problem: anyone - they
C - Verb tense problem. Sequence of events. Thus, need past perfect, not present perfect.
D - correct
E - SV problem: anybody - they

1) we have "they" in the original sentence so we need a plural subject in the if clause.

2) if clause type 3
