C - as a result, so depressed has the sales been that
D - the resulting sales figures having been so depressed that
E - the sales figures have been so depressed that, as a result


1. semicolon joins the two independent clause. A and C out
2. confused btw "so depressed as" and "as a result" B-out
3. "figures having been so depressed that" - D out

E will be winer!
