    The sentence makes no sense with A.
    "We'd have asked ..." means "We would have asked ..."
    The meaning is that if you had told us he was a famous doctor, we would have asked for his autograph. This implies that 'we' weren't told.

    You need to make your own attempt first.

    Yes, the answer's A. We don't say, "It's not worth for ..."
