A. financial ruin; its assets are now almost three times greater than -> Correct
B. financial ruin; its assets are now almost three times more than -> Although I'm not a fan of such logic: "Greater than" preferred over "More than"
C. financial ruin; their assets are now almost threefold -> "Their" referring back to "The Watsons", which is singular (the verb "has" also gives us this clue)
D. financial ruin; now with threefold the assets (fragmented sentence)
E. financial ruin; now with assets three times greater than (fragmented sentence)
