words like recommend advocate should be followed by that.
thus eliminating options D and E
of A, B, C
B changes the meaning of the sentence.
Of A and C
A is precise and C has unnecessary which
So I guess it is option A.

(A)that some Blacks return to Africa, the land that,to him, symbolized the possibility of freedom
Correct !!
(B)that some Blacks return to the African land symbolizing the possibility of freedom to him

(C)that some Blacks return to Africa which was the land which symbolized the possibility of freedom to him
Which must be preceded by a comma

(D)some B1ack's returning to Africa which was the land that to him symbolized the possibility of freedom
change in meaning

(E)some B1ack's return to the land symbolizing the possibility of freedom to him,Africa
Awkward construction and possessive


IMO A

    I first go to the choices and then look vertically at the differences, comparing one element at a time.
  • Advocated that some blacks vs. advocated some Black’s. When in doubt about the intended meaning, lean on A.
    Definitely Blacks vs. Black’s. Eliminate D and E.
  • A/B/C. I like to work with the end of each choice. Possibility of freedom vs. possibility of freedom to him.
    Again, when in doubt about the intended meaning, lean on A. For that reason, “freedom to him” has to go. Eliminate B/C.

A is the answer

Looking at the meaning of sentence, it looks as the sentence is intended to say:-

Blacks return to Africa. To the mentioned leader, this return to the land symbolized the possibility of freedom.

D and E are out because of 'Black's'

(B)that some Blacks return to the African land symbolizing the possibility of freedom to him. 'Symbolizing' modifies 'land' incorrectly. Also freedom 'to him' is not desired.

(C)that some Blacks return to Africa which was the land which symbolized the possibility of freedom to him. freedom 'to him' is not desired.
