D is the best choice as it uses the correct idiom - "as many...as"

A is definitely out due to the use of past perfect tense which is not correct here.
C is out coz wrong idiom as ...that
E the same to C.
In B, I doubt the position of "at once " right after the verb " confronted" .
Feel nothing wrong with D so I go for it.
