Darwin was not the first to advance a theory of evolution; his tremendous originality lay in the fact that he proposed the idea of natural selection as the means by which evolution worked.
(A) lay in the fact that he proposed the idea
(B) lay in the fact of his proposing the idea
(C) laid in the fact of his proposing the idea
(D) laid in his proposal
(E) lay in his proposal
But don't you think 'E' talks about the originality in the proposal or the document made on natural selection. It seems it talks about the way the proposal is documented and presented on natural selection.
I feel the originality was found in the fact that he was the first to propose that idea among those who had already proposed severl such theories..
Me too confused between A & E. As everyone else stated, E is concise and A is wordy could be the explanation.

I was actually between D and E.
The originality was idea that he proposed, hence proposal expresses that in less words.
Between D and E I guess lay is preferred as the originality is still there today.
Didn't the OA come too quick?? _________________
