  4. In A, B, and D, "whom" is needed because each time the word is an OBJECT (direct object in A and D, object of a preposition in B).

    Subject form: who
    Object form: whom

    Compare with "he" and "him." Would you say, "Were you discussing he?" or "Were you discussing him?" (Notice the -m on the object form of both these pronouns.)
