(E) for any previous campaign correct
from A to D number is wrong with pronoiun, Army is singular(collective noun)

is option E gramatically correct gents?

entered russia with far more supplies than for any previous campaign.

I went with D, but i see my mistake (thanks to rajeevrks27 explanation).

A, B & C are wrong because Napleon's Army is singular.

Edit: add D to that too.

Army is singular, So only option E is correct. All other choices have they/their referring to army.

It's not a 700 Problem by far. Please change the flag.....
The first 4 answer choices are wrond because they use a plural pronoun they ot their. Arm is singular - so only Choice (E) eliminates the pronoun error.
