My answer would be A. allograft rejection

REASON

graft arteriosclerosis-in general arteriosclerosis due to maignant hypertention

graft atherosclerosis-no specific increased risk of ATH in transplant (i guess)

Oppurtunistic infx-can happen after any transplant due to immunosupression

lymphoma- its a benign tumor .i dont think it happen after immunosuppresion

well not sure
