I'm going to say A.

C, D, and E appear to distort the meaning of the sentence. Moreover, 'possible' and 'might have been' used in the same clause in E are redundant. C and D appear to say that find was possibly a site where statues must have been reproduced, whereas according to what I understand this isn't clear.

A) what might have been...does not make sense and also "including" is wrong because both things were not included into each other.
B) same as A. ( except that including has been corrected in here )
C) This seems correct except that it assumes that statues were indeed produced there and not brought from somewhere else
D) including is not correct and also distorts the meaning of sentence.
E) This seems to have no mistake.

I'll go with "E". Please post the OA.

That's a good catch, LM! I didn't pay attention to the "..fragments...including...intact statues" in choice A
.
So, A is definitely wrong

E: Isn't using "plus" a no-no? should be sub'd by "and"?

I am thinking C here.

Its B

Frangments can't include intact statue therefore A D E out

C suggests as if the site is of a possible workshop not of something which might have been a workshop..
