It is a close call b/w C and E; however C is passive and the use of "had" is wrong. For active it should be subject + object rather than object + subject.

In C you have object (decleration) followed by subhect (Elizabeth)

E is correct

I think differently.
I think in C, "had been" is correct because this "had been" precede logically " was adopted". So, why C is wrong
This is hard one.
the reason for which C is wrong is passive. the focus of sentence is on who do including. this is main idea of the sentence. the passive in C distort the meaning by not showing the agent of including.

the problem is the lesion of difference between passive and active mode. we use passive when the action is the focus. we use active when the agent of action is the focus

very interesting point
