Hi, "credited for" is used for praising somebody for something and "Credited with" is used for awarding/adding something to an individual. So correct ans should be A. Please provide an explanation.

Known correct usages :

credited as + Noun phrase
to credit with + Verb phrase
give credit for (when money is received in exchange for something)
credit X Rupees to Y’s account (when money is involved)

1) Credit with is used when we credit some person for what he/she did.

Like in this case: She is credited with solving cases.

2) Credit to is used when we talk about some attribute.

For example: The success of Joe in GMAT is credited to GMAT club.

3) Credit for is used when we give credit for something in exchange.

For example: Joe received credit for all his hard work.


4) Credit as is never correct.
