C because "decline of" seems idiomatically correct and "that began" corrects the tense error with "begun"

Hi,
think that still and present continuous do not fit together
So A and B are out
In C the problem is that ' that' may refer to decline or culture so there is ambiguity. So C is out.
In E "declining culture" followed by past simple is wrong
I believe it is D

I believe that is not a pronoun, so it is not ambiguous to what it is refering to. Rather, it is an essential modifier.
