(A) The letter is singular. Hence, "were" is wrong usage.
(B) It should be "in the same year as the publication of"
(D) and (E) The letter reveals the observation and not the publication.

Answer: C

Well I am not sure whether it is an official question or not, but all the options seems to be wrong.

A letter by Mark Twain, written in the same year as The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn were published, reveals that Twain provided financial assistance to one of the first Black students at Yale Law School.
(A) A letter by Mark Twain, written in the same year as The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn were published, - Proper noun should use was
(B) A letter by Mark Twain, written in the same year of publication as The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, - As normally is followed by a clause and not a noun when used for comparison
(C) A letter by Mark Twain, written in the same year that The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was published, - that modifies the same year. But the pronoun usage is wrong. same year represents a time which should be modified by when/in which
(D) Mark Twain wrote a letter in the same year as he published The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn that - changing the main clause to a dependent clause i.e changing the intended meaning (converting the main idea to a supporting idea)
(E) Mark Twain wrote a letter in the same year of publication asThe Adventures of Huckleberry Finn that - same as D

Given the options, B seems the most appropriate.

as the adventures ......... that twain is wrong idiom
that the ........that
so C is correct.



Can written modify Mark Twain , since written comes under V+ed modifier???
