I actually go for TOF, because single S2, VSD, SEM, and this cxr apereance is most compatible with TOF. In addition TOF can cause cyanosis in a newvorn

this is TOF. this is the boot shaped heart of tof. TGA shows enlargement but systolic murmur would be unlikely.

Answer is C because the image shows a egg on a string not a boot shaped heart. This is the image of a boot shaped heart . Also a d-TgA will als have a VSD and its murmurs loud S2, holosystolic murmur. But the answer lies in the image of the "egg on a string".
This new image i posted is a boot shaped heart of TOF
