(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.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



Here the first thing you have to ask yourself is: what did the judge rule? Did he rule on two ping-pong ball manufacturers or on restitution? No, the judge ruled that they owed something. That means that A, B and C are the only possible answer choices. You have to also maintain an agreement in tenses. The judge ruled that somebody owed something, not owes. That eliminates choice C. One difference between choices A and B is the use of different idioms. The manufacturers owed restitution for something, not because of something. This is the correct idiomatic expression. The use of ‘their’ is B is also ambiguous. Choice A is the correct answer.
