(A) would have known the landlord's side of the story, she would not have written

using "would have" in the IF clause is INCORRECT
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

(B) would of known the landlord's side of the story, she would not of written

using "would" in both IF and THEN clauses is INCORRECT
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

(C) had known the landlord's side of the story, she would not have written

past perfect in IF clause should be followed by "would have/would not have" + verb in THEN clause.
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

(D) had known the landlord's side of the story, she would not have wrote
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

(E) knew the landlord's side of the story, she would not have written

simple past tense "knew" in IF clause should be followed either by simple past or "would" but not "would have" INCORRECT
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Hence option C
