OE:
This question hinges on which idiomatic construction to use with "credited." You give credit to someone for something (The historian gave credit to the Chinese for the invention of gunpowder). You credit someone with being someone or having done something (The historian credited the Chinese with being the inventors of gunpowder; The historian credited the Chinese with having invented gunpowder). "Credited as" is never correct.



B, credited with is the correct idiom.
