This question, as it is, is absurd at best and ludicrous at worst.
Let us go over each answer choices.
A, B, C --? тАЬthe/A historianтАЭ does not agree with pronoun тАЬtheirтАЭ
A, B --> тАЬthe historianтАЭ refers to one particular historian, this reference
distorts the meaning of the sentence.
D --> What is modified by тАЬwriting about itтАЭ? Is the record writing or the тАЬitтАЭ writing?
E --> тАЬinevitableтАЭ is an adjective, which canтАЩt modify a verb.
I think this question has typo. In answer choice E, тАЬinevitableтАЭ should be тАЬinevitablyтАЭ
After the modification, the answer choice is E.
