...come to personify+noun... is idiomatic.

(B) is too stilted. (A) has a S-V error.

Answer should be (E)

E) as well ! it shows that "that" not always modifies the noun it preceeds.

answer should be E.

A. wrong subject verb agreement devastation and enslavement together is plural. so have instead of has should have been used.

B. the use of which is awkward.

C and D uses wrong particple

so E is the only right choice.

:shock:
I thought i should be A.
It is the progress that decimated native peoples of the Western Hemisphere, so the use of "has" is justified.

I narrowed down to B and E. Could you tell me whats wrong in my reasoning about B:

"has" and "have" are used when the action is still continuing. Here the decimation is over and not continuing.... so we should not use "has" or "have". B satisfies that. :stupid

(B) suggests that the native peoples did the decimating. We need a present perfect passive structure here to clarify that the native peoples were victimized. Have in (E) works best because both decimation and enslavement taken together are plural.
