Credited with X is the best way to illustrate the meaning above.

For A) You cannot say credited AS a participle.
For C) Credit to can only be used with a noun in between. I credit my success to my hardwork
For D) I actually think this is correct (but B is a simpler/more concise way of illustrating the sentences meaning). credit as NOUN, for example -> I am credited as a founder of that company
