the incorrect part is the "it was" after the "and". So just remove it and have the rest of the phrase intact.

So E is the right answer!

"E" it is.

"the first book by a Black woman and it was only the second published by an American woman"
This whole phrase is a modifier which itself must be a parallel.In addition to that,"Only" should be placed just before the required word.Here placing "Only" before the "Second published:" makes sense and prevails over the others.

(A) -ism problem described above
(B) -ism problem described above
(C)Only wrongly modifies published.
(D)Only wrongly modifies American Woman
(E)Correct.Reason is described above
