C it is.

'that he was appointed...' modifies 'year' (need to use 'that' as the information is ciritical - essential modifier).

'as' is not preferred as we tend to use 'as' only when we want to compare clauses.

C -


A. A dedication by Colin Powell, given in the same year as his appointment as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (not idiomatic)
B. A dedication by Colin Powell, given in the same year as his appointment to chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (not idiomatic)
C. A dedication by Colin Powell, given in the same year that he was appointed chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
D. Colin Powell gave a dedication in the same year as his appointment as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff that - (this sounds like he and his appointment gave a dedication at the same time)
E. Colin Powell gave a dedication in the same year of appointment as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff that (awkward)

I`m wagering on B.

If you look closely the comma after staff isn`t underlined, so that rules D an E out.

A. A dedication by Colin Powell, given in the same year as his appointment as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
not idiomatic

B. A dedication by Colin Powell, given in the same year as his appointment to chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
changes the meaning

C. A dedication by Colin Powell, given in the same year that he was appointed chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff

Correct. that used for year.

D. Colin Powell gave a dedication in the same year as his appointment as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff that -

(this sounds like he and his appointment gave a dedication at the same time)
E. Colin Powell gave a dedication in the same year of appointment as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff that

This differs from C in that, it states that giving a dedication in the same year as his appointment commemorated the soldiers......
We need to separte this additional information using the comma

I am late but C is my pick.

E doesn't convey the right meaning.
