(A) bringing
(B) and brings
(C) and it brings
(D) and it brought
(E) and brought


(A) bringing - Correct
(B) and brings - No subject in the earlier part of the sentence (who brings....)
(C) and it brings - what is the antecedent for "it" ?
(D) and it brought -tense error
(E) and brought - same as B above

I'm thinkin' A(rby's).

That's what feels most natural to me, but I'm not sure why. Grammatically, it seems like it might be necessary to match the tense of "received." I'll be interested to see the official answer and everyone else's reasoning.
