The underline portion of the sentence has two pronouns, they and it, and it has an if construction expressing an assumption. The sentence, written as it is, has no pronoun error: plural pronoun "they" refers to French and singular pronoun "it" refers to Morocco. But, the underline part expressing the hypothetical condition in the past requires a consequent expressed in past tense. Choice(A) and (C) has wrong if construction. The word "that" in choice (D) is placed wrongly -the phrase after comma illogically describes "that" and  the part of the sentence  reads...they assumed that without that,...... The choice (E) is a perfect trap with correct tense. The usage of pronoun "it" and its placement in choice (E) lead to ambiguity in the meaning. The sentence with Choice (B) is the best expression.
