Hello Anshup,
Please check the intended meaning of the sentence.
Option C is the correct answer.

Please revert if you are not getting it.

I rejected C
Becuase of being
With being we need to have noun but absolved and exculpated are not nouns
Thats why i choose D

Can someone plz elaborate on this

In option B: “Before He” but we are talking about madame cama, so it’s wrong.
Option D: parallel construction “ before exculpation and her absolution” so it’s worng

Here no other sentence but "C" makes sense because of "Tricked by fickle partners" but can someone [lease explain when is the use of being accepted
Being is used for a temporary state, here how are absolution and exculpation are temporary?
