Remember to check the contrapositives as well when trying to see how two conditionals relate to each other.
valid one party accepted a legitimate offer
The contrapositive is:
one party accepted a legitimate offer valid
This is like the scenario in E. You don't always need to be able to neatly combine your conditionals into one to get the correct answer.
The reason (B) doesn't work is that it incorrectly equates "someone in the position of the party to whom it was made would reasonably believe the offer to be made in jest" with the offeror, unknown to the offeree, making the offer in jest. For that reason, it can be eliminated even without manipulating the conditionals.
