A) looks fine.
I believe "discovered that" is a proper construction.
Choice D is most concise but akward.

Rajbhai are you sure that "that" is part of the underlined portion of the question?

"that" is indeed part of the underlined question. I did double check it.

I will choose D instead of A.
I will give more preference to parallel construction.
Can we have the official answer too?
Thanks,

there seems to be a problem here.

A relative pronoun is needed in the rest of the choices. I removed
"that" from the underlined sentence. IMO, D is the best
