Hi..

look at the 3-2 split first

1) IT vs HIM
the knights were to join " the order of golden fleece", so pronoun should be IT and not him
B and D eliminated

2) a crusade to east vs eastern crusade..
as per meaning a crusade to the east is correct
C eliminated

3) parallelism
the three items are noun..
uncompromising fealty, devotion and a commitment

Only D left
