(A) when the proposal was dropped by the Wilson administration, it -- can't say whether 'it' stands for the proposal or the Wilson Admin.
(B) after it was dropped, the Wilson administration --'it' can stand for the proposal or for the German view

(C) by dropping the proposal, the Wilson administration -- Good God ! There is no pronoun here. The best answer.

(D) the Wilson administration dropped the proposal when it-- 'It' can stand for the proposal or the Wilson Admin. It looks as though the proposal veered towards the British view.

(E) when they dropped the proposal, the Wilson administration-- The only plural noun is warships, and it will be absurd to say the warships dropped the proposal rather than bombs
