(A) how they would have to act militarily to deal with them - Wrong Context
(B) how to deal with them if military action would be necessary - Wrong Context
(C) what would be necessary militarily for dealing with such an event - Wrong construction
(D) what military action would be necessary in order to deal with such an event
(E) the necessity of what kind of military action in order to take for dealing with it - Wrong context.

A, B - We are talking about russian attempt and not about russians themselves.

left with C, D & E
E - Wrong context

left with C & D
C - Verb Tense. dealing, militarily - Not very good construction.

D

D. "consider" requires a parallel "deal" and it avoids any reference errors that "they" creates.

what can be the reason for not selecting "C", is it the incorrect Idiom "for dealing with" ? I think D is wordy and is unnecessarily using "in order to" .

C would be correct if the sentence was using "considering" instead of consider. parallelism issue here imho.

IMO D

(A) how they would have to act militarily to deal with them ("they" and "them" Pronoun reference Error)
(B) how to deal with them if military action would be necessary ("them" Pronoun reference Error)
(C) what would be necessary militarily for dealing with such an event ("For dealing" incorrect usage of idiom)
(D) what military action would be necessary in order to deal with such an event (simple and clear)
(E) the necessity of what kind of military action in order to take for dealing with it (Wordy and Awkward)

wats the OA?

C is using militarily, therefore sentence does not give correct meaning.

The correct idiom is CONSIDER X AND Y

Here X is POSIBLE RUSSIAN ATTEMPT()which is a noun) .

The structure of Y should begin with noun.

The British Admiralty and the War Office met in March 1892 to consider a possible Russian attempt to seize Constantinople and how they would have to act militarily to deal with them.
(A) how they would have to act militarily to deal with them
the noun is "a possible Russian attempt" and it cannot be refer by them. Also militarily is an adv which is less preferred if we have a possibility of an adj. Hence incorrect

(B) how to deal with them if military action would be necessary
the noun is "a possible Russian attempt" and it cannot be refer by them. Hence incorrect

(C) what would be necessary militarily for dealing with such an event
Not parallel to 'to seize'... hence incorrect!

(D) what military action would be necessary in order to deal with such an event
Correct - military is used as adj (which is preferred)... No pronoun used .... and to deal is parallel to to seize

(E) the necessity of what kind of military action in order to take for dealing with it
too wordy... also dealing is not parallel to to seize.... incorrect!
