Yes, only 'E' is correct.

Rest all choices have S-V error!

I choose E too.

"Entered with more ...than for any previous campaign, it had ... for only twenty-four days." Correct me if this doesn't need to be parallel.

I will go with A

B - "had had" - I know there are cases when this construct could be right, however, don't think it is needed here.

C- changes meaning - it is comparing the current campaign to all the previous missons that may or may not have included russia - not sure if this was the intended meaning, so sticking with the original meaning

D - incorrect comparison - compares "more supplies" to "previous campaign"

E - similar to D

Napoleans Army is a singular subject and can't take They or Their.

Moreover E correctly compares the current supplies with that of a previous one.

Kishore and old_dream_1976,

I agree with you guys, "their" and "they" are incorrect pronouns since army is singular.

My concern with E was that it was incorrectly comparing supplies with the previous campaign... I guess.. the "for" in "for any previous campaign" is used to indicate the supplies and hence makes the right comparison.

Correct me if my understanding is incorrect...

In short, I concurr that it should be E.

E is best. In A-D, their and they are incorrect because army is singular.

Unlike "people", "army" is a singular word. Answer- E.
