Pediatrics Neonatal multiple abnormalities; Guess the Syndrome?

A newborn boy delivered at 38 weeks is small for gestational age. Physical examination shows microcephaly, frontal bossing, long and narrow forehead, hypotelorism, maxillary and mandibular hypoplasia, narrow palpebral fissures, thin elongated philtrum, vermilion border of the upper lip, dental malocclusion, saddle nose, tooth enamel hypoplasia, and uvular hypoplasia. Ocular problems include microphthalmia, corneal clouding, coloboma, nystagmus, strabismus, and ptosis. A systolic murmur is heard on auscultation, and echocardiography shows a membranous ventricular septal defect. Which of the following conditions is most likely to produce these findings?
(A) Congenital rubella
(B) Placenta previa
(C) Maternal diabetes mellitus
(D) Trisomy 21
(E) Fetal alcohol syndrome

I'm confused between A or E. With rubella you see PDA or pulmonic stenosis so I'd go with E) Fetal Alcohol Syndrome ??
