In my opinion "Give back" means "to support" or "make donations". If you add "it" then it means that MrKing took the fortune from the community.

Generally, SC answers should make the original sentence correct without changing the meaning if possible. The addition of 'it' in D changes the meaning to say that he gave his entire fortune back to the community (gave it back v. gave part of it back), which is a change in meaning which we cannot infer, as maybe he gave an amount equal to 1/4 or 1/2 back. Thus, A is the best answer.

D seems to be the answer. The pronoun it refers to the fortune.
