You have to give way to B according to the right-hand rule. A on the other hand is obligated to give way to you, as they are crossing your lane.

The most appropriate, easy and logical approach is to let car B pass and then drive on without giving way to A and D. You have time to drive on while A and D are still blocked by B. Stopping to wait in such a case is unnecessary and creates confusion.

There is a similar question where it is best to temporarily deviate from the rules. However, how can you know when it is appropriate and when it is inappropriate to deviate from the rules?

Rule of thumb: Does the traffic situation as a whole obviously benefit a lot from us temporarily deviating from the rules? – If the answer is yes, then disregard the rules and do what comes naturally, provided that all those involved appear to be in agreement. After all, you are to show “good judgement when interacting with other road users.” However, if it is not apparent that it is most convenient to temporarily deviate from the rules, or if the common benefit of doing so is small, you should stick to the rules. Doing otherwise could cause confusion, which is not a good thing in traffic.
