(A) land, to what had been a pre-Columbian form of ownership respected by the Spaniards
- lengthy and awkward

(B) land, a form of ownership of the pre-Columbians and respected by the Spaniards
- I'll go with this. seperating the land with a comma allows the next phrase to describe the type of ownership

(C) land, respected by the Spaniards and a pre-Columbian form of ownership
- sounds like land that is repsected yb Spaniards

(D) land in which a pre-Columbian form of ownership was respected by the Spaniards
- 'in' is not appropriate

(E) land that had been a pre-Columbian form of ownership respected by the Spaniards
- changes the meaning of the sentence. By using 'that' to introduce the modifier, it turns the modifier into an essential modifier thus changing the meaning of 'land'

B for me.

hm ? the "communal ownerhip" was a "pre-columbian form of ownership", not the "land". A) sounds weird, but it is the only one that holds the meaning right.

I vote for B.

E - "form of ownership respected by the spaniards" sounds a bit odd to me, I think it should have been "form of ownership that was respected by the spaniards"
