Default Inguinal hernia in infants

A 9 month-old boy is brought to the clinic by his mother who is concerned that the boy developed swelling in his right scrotum. On examination, there is a scrotal mass that disappears when pushing it back to the external inguinal ring. When the boy cries, the mass is felt again protruding out of the external inguinal ring.
What is the most likely etiology of this condition?
A-Defect in the inguinal canal
B-Defect in the pelvic floor
C-Patent processus vaginalis
D-Defective closure of tunica vaginalis
E-Undescended testis
