Between A & B I choose A.

"What" makes sense here and the logical link between Pre-Columbian and Spaniards is not really clear in B...

My choice is 'D'.
I eliminated 'A' because I have not seen a sentence in the form of 'to what had been a....'. Going through the above posts makes me wonder whether my assumption is wrong but anyway I will stick to my choice and wait for the OA.

1. to what had been a pre-Columbian form of ownership respected by the Spaniards is // to to communal ownership of land.
2. As a consequence, after the word land a pause is required.
3. what indicates that the pre-Columbian form of ownership respected by the Spaniards is the communal ownership of land.

Hope it all makes sense.

The OA is A.

Oxon, many many thanks for your detailed explanation. I understood this Sc almost, except one thing- when exactly do we use "to what had been"?? and why does this phrase require the use of "to'??
