Hi..

Issues in the Q..
1) Modifier :- "On the verge....." Should modify Gulfstream. Observers cannot be on the verge of bankruptcy.
Only B and D remain.
2) Active voice and meaning :- B is straight and much better than D.

B

The opening modifier clearly modifies Gulfstream, hence only B & D remain.
D- even happened in the past, so it is already considered, not to be considered. Also B is less wordy than D

Hence B is the answer.
