(A) yet they often sell timber below cost to private business and, in a recent year, it lost more than $2 billion of taxpayer money on these “sweetheart deals.” (U.S. Forest Service is singular. So, usage of 'they' is wrong.)
(B) yet it often sell timber below cost to private business and, in a recent year, it lost more than $2 billion of taxpayer money on these “sweetheart deals.” (Sells is required with pronoun it)
(C) yet the Service often sells timber below cost to private business and, in a recent year, it lost more than $2 billion of taxpayer money on this “sweetheart deals.” (Sweetheart deals are plural. So usage of this is incorrect)
(D) yet it often sells timber below cost to private business, in a recent year, it lost more than $2 billion of taxpayer money on these “sweetheart deals.” (We cannot join two independent sentences with comma only)
(E) yet it often sells timber below cost to private business and, in a recent year, lost more than $2 billion of taxpayer money on these “sweetheart deals.” (Correct)

Kudos please if you like my explanation!
