C. the time being necessary to publish a book, months to days
D. the time needed to publish a book from months to days
F. from months to days, the time needed for the publishing of a book - uses gerund, which can be avoided and replaced by a clause

Contenders- A and D
shortened what? "the time to publish" the object of the sentence must follow the verb for the sentence to be direct and concise.
