I believe the answer is C. The term evidence should have been followed by 'OF'. either evidence of the fact that north indians developed... or evidence of development of calendar by north indians...

between B, C and D, the phrase evidence of north american indians makes B and D absurd. The evidence is of development of calendar and not of north american indians.

Hence C.

I disagree with C, "basing them" seems ambiguous.

The correct idiomatic expression is evidence of... This rules out choices A and E.
B uses the verb have developed in incorrect, it means that the calender is still in use.
In C, the last part of the sentence seems to connect more with the North Indians than the calender.

My answer choice is D.

I will choose E as my answer.

I think "that" can be used in this sentence.
A calendar stick is the evidence that the Indians have developed an full year calendar.

Devoleped and based is parallelism, I think.

Please correct me if I am wrong.

I stick to E.
I would have chosen C but 'basing them' stops me from doing so.
