I am going for B.

Sentences separated by semi-colon should be able to stand on their own. This eliminates D and E
There is no need for a progressive tense here. Hence A and C out.

B.

good trick SM176811, you wanna the reader to read/look carefully to your post with answer!

D, E out.

B is simple past tense, as the rest of the clause they once thought they could.
