A. were expected to dress elegantly, carry on witty intellectual conversation, and not least, they had to enjoy gambling
"were expected to do A, B and they had to C" - Destroys parallelism

B. was expected to dress elegantly, carry on witty intellectual conversation, and not least, they had to enjoy gambling
"all those"..."was" - Incorrect Subject Verb pair

C. were expected to dress elegantly, carry on witty intellectual conversation, and not least, enjoy gambling
Correct

D. were expected to be elegantly dressed, carry on witty conversation, and enjoy gambling at least
1) missing "intellectual"
2) between "to be elegantly dressed" and "dress elegantly", choose latter (as in choice C)
3) "at least" what? "at least" should modify "enjoy gambling"

E. were expected to be elegant dressers, witty conversationalists, and, not least, enjoyable gamblers
Changes the meaning totally. People were supposed to be "elegantly dressed" (explains how) and NOT "elegant dressers" (a profession)
