A – Keep. Explains clearly with past perfect tense what happenend earlier.
B – changes meaning. Ownership of pre – cloumbians is wrong. Eliminate
C – Lack of parallelism. Eliminate
D – modifies land and not necessarily “communal ownership of land” . Eliminate
E – same as D. Eliminate

Return the ownership of the land to what it was previously.

(If you take out all the extra clauses and associated commas)

It is a pre-Columbian form of ownership, not a pre-Columbian ownership. Also, I think the respect portion of the sentence is odd. Would be more correct of it was "and ONE respected by the Spaniards."

At the time of the Mexican agrarian revolution, the most radical faction, that of Zapata and his followers, proposed a return to communal ownership of land, to what had been a pre-Columbian form of ownership respected by the Spaniards.

(A) land, to what had been a pre-Columbian form of ownership respected by the Spaniards
(B) land, a form of ownership of the pre-Columbians and respected by the Spaniards :- "A form of ownrship of pre-columbian" different meaning - " A pre-columbian form of ownership"
(C) land, respected by the Spaniards and a pre-Columbian form of ownership : Not parralel
(D) land in which a pre-Columbian form of ownership was respected by the Spaniards : Meaning is

communal ownership of land is a kind of "a pre-Columbian form of ownership" and that form of ownership respected by Spaniards.
(E) land that had been a pre-Columbian form of ownership respected by the Spaniards

That modifies immediately preceding noun, in this case land.

I am not able to wrap my head around

proposed a return to communal ownership of land, to what had been a pre-Columbian form of ownership respected by the Spaniards.

it's like to __, to__
