A. repeated impacts broke the surface apart, and after which the fragments were subsequently rejoined because of -> rightly used
B.repeated impacts on the surface broke it apart, after which the fragments having rejoined with -> running sentence
C.through repeated impacts that the surface broke apart, after which the fragments subsequently rejoined by. -> suggested through impacts is wrong
D.the surface broke apart with repeated impacts, after which the fragments having rejoined through. ->running sentence
E.the surface broke apart as a result of repeated impacts , after which the fragments rejoined through. -> eliminate since rejoined through force is not correct,rejoined by force or because of force is correct

im muddled between A and E
somehow through does not click hence A is the choice with subsequently playing its role .

I would go E.

A. don't need "and" / "the fragments were subsequently rejoined" is passive
B. "having rejoined" is wrong
C. don't even know where to begin...
D. "having rejoined" is wrong
E. clear, concise, and grammatically correct

"after which' modifies "impacts", so it needs to be close to "impacts"

A is passive. In B and "having rejoined" is wrong, and C is ugly and wrong. Is E

repeated impacts broke or the surface broke apart?

It is at one time the surface broke apart

D) having rejoined is incorrect in D.
