We didn’t need to work all hours on the presentation as the meeting was canceled at the last minute.

A. We didn’t need to work - Incorrect - We use "didn't need" to to say that something was not necessary under circumstances where it was not done - In this case the work has been been done.
B. We needn’t have worked - Correct - When we say that someone "needn't have" done something, it means that they did it, but it was not necessary. This conveys the meaning correctly
C. We don’t have to work - Incorrect - The latter half states that the meeting was cancelled so "we don't have to work" does not fit in as the tense is different - Incorrect Tense
D. We mustn’t have worked - Incorrect - This means that they must not have worked - Incorrect meaning
E. We don’t need to work - Incorrect - The latter half states that the meeting was cancelled so "we don't need to work" does not fit in as the tense is different - Incorrect Tense
