Ahh, the difference between A and E is meaning.

A's meaning is unclear. Which did really inspire Agatha Christie? Husband or travels?

E is airtight.

Between the choices A and E, E is more meaningful and my answer choice.

And about 's form not going well with A and E, actually it seems correct to me.
In E, Agatha Christie's travels with her archaeologist husband served as inspiration seems logical.
