E)because of its failure to honor its promise to its customers of keeping


Here is my two cents..

if you read the sentence as

the state's attorney general accused the bank ....... by failing

this construction sounds good.

For other choices, B, C

.... bank .... by its failure

D, E
.. and bank .... because of its failure...

are ackward construction.
Hence its A

I think its A. There is nothing wrong with the sentence and any of the other choices don't offerr any better alternative.

"in its" - wrong usage

Indeed, why "because" in E is wrong?

I think "of keeping " in E makes it an incorrect answer choice.
