Although Napolean's army entered Russia with far more supplies than they had in their previous campaigns, it had provisions for only twenty-four days.

A) they had in their previous campaigns
c) they had for any previous campaign,
D) in their previous campaigns,
E) for any previous campaigns,

[Reveal] Spoiler:
I have no doubt with the answer, but as per the solution provided by the GMAC, in options a and c, the verb should be had had. First HAD to show possesiveness and the second HAD to show the sequence of events. Now my doubt is that if there is already a word PREVIOUSLY to show the sequence of event, then is it really necessary to use the second HAD?

The topic has been mis-transcribed. The underlining is essentially wrong. Here is the correct version..

Although Napoleon's army entered Russia with far more supplies than they had in their previous campaigns, it had provisions for only twenty-four days.
(A) they had in their previous campaigns
(C) they had for any previous campaign
(D) in their previous campaigns
(E) for any previous campaign

A) same as underlined Pronoun error
c) they had for any previous campaign,Pronoun error
D) in their previous campaigns,Pronoun error
E) for any previous campaigns, Correct

The non underlined part It has provisions...Clearly tells us the subject is singular. And all options ABCD include they as pronoun for the subject. So we can eliminate all options except E.
