between A and D.

D looks good.

E little ambigous is it home/festivals that featured.
... "home that featured...."

I will go with E.

Aho, a Kiowa matriarch, held festivals in her home, they featured the preparation of great quantities of ceremonial food, the wearing of many layers of colorful clothing adorned with silver, and the recounting of traditional tribal jokes and stories.

A. Aho, a Kiowa matriarch, held festivals in her home, they featured - The festivals should not be refered by "they". They should be used for people.
B. Festivals were held in Aho, a Kiowa matriarchs home, which featured- In this case, which refers to the home and home is not featureing anything.
C. Aho, who was a Kiowa matriarch in her home, held festivals featuring- Was in this case means that, she is not a Kiowa matriarch any more, distorts the meaning and "featuring the preperation of" construction is also awkward.
D. In her home, Aho, a Kiowa matriarch, held festivals that featured- Although it uses "that" correctly, I find the contruction ofthe sentence awkward, there should be more to it I think.
E. Aho, a Kiowa matriarch, held festivals in her home that featured- This correctly uses "that" and clearly tells that Aho held the festivals in her home.

What is OA?

A. Aho, a Kiowa matriarch, held festivals in her home, they featured
Although grammatically correct, here we have 2 independent sentences joined by a comma, instead of semicolon or some other connector. So this creates a run on sentence and wrong.

B. Festivals were held in Aho, a Kiowa matriarchs home, which featured
This sentences implies "home" featured the preparation, while logical intention is that festival featured preparation.

C. Aho, who was a Kiowa matriarch in her home, held festivals featuring
This sentence implies Aho is Kiowa matriarch only in her home and outside home she is something else.

D. In her home, Aho, a Kiowa matriarch, held festivals that featured
Correct Choice.

E. Aho, a Kiowa matriarch, held festivals in her home that featured
This sentences implies "home" featured the preparation, while logical intention is that festival featured preparation.

Abhijit, I agree, it should be D; it is the festivals that featured and not home....
This is the reason, one shouldn't answer questions when in a meetting (at work) :oops:
