Best answer

"it does contain some pioneering ideas, one would hardly"

"contain some pioneering ideas" means the work can be "innovative" but the usage of "hardly" means the work is "not exactly innovative".

Options B, C and D are not suitable because they are all negative usage and with "hardly" - a negative word, they becomes positive which is wrong with the given sentence. 

Option A is correct.
