(A) that two ping-pong ball manufacturers owed restitution to four national ping-pong teams for the illegal weighting of – correct choice

(B) that two ping-pong ball manufacturers owed restitution to four national ping-pong teams because of their illegal weighting of -- ‘their’ is ambiguous. Does it refer to the teams or manufacturers?

(C) that two ping-pong ball manufacturers owe restitution to four national ping- pong teams for their illegal weighting of --same as B

￼(D) on two ping-pong ball manufacturers that owed restitution to four national ping-pong teams because they illegally weighted – ‘ruled on’ is wrong diction. It should be ‘ruled that' and the ltter part should be amended accordingly ’

(E) on the restitution that two ping-pong ball manufacturers owed to four national ping-pong teams for the illegal weighting of – same as in D.

You had not to choose C, because as daagh has already said it is not clear in this case to whom "their" refers to - to manufactures or to teams.
