A. she tells him to stop calling, but he acted as if he had not understood her Looks correct[/b
B. she [strike]told[/strike] him to stop calling, but he acted as if he had not understood her
C. she tells him to stop calling, but he acted as if he did not [strike]understood[/strike] her
D. she tells him to stop calling, but he acted as if he has not understood her [b] maybe

E. she tells him to stop calling, but he acted as if he does not [strike]understood[/strike]her

Issue is the use of present/past participle confused

I go with D. OA?

Boils down to C and D because everything should be in present tense.
In C, "he did not understood" is wrong.

Has understood - use of present perfect is needed to keep the whole sentence in the same tense form
Now it makes sense
