Tougher one, I would go with "E".

It's more to do with the logical meaning of the sentence than usage of restrictive clause 'that', I think.

is there a difference between

'the devastation and enslavement' and 'the devastation and the enslavement'. I thought first one is singular and the second plural...

chose (A) initially and changed my mind to (E) because devastation and enslavement requires HAVE.

I prefer A guys. My thoughts...

A. For many revisionist historians, Christopher Columbus has come to Personify devastation and enslavement in the name of progress that
has decimated native peoples of the Western Hemisphere.


1. devastation is the synonym for decimate so we are talking about the progress that decimated native peoples.

2. Look at the bold text.. 'native peoples' used without article the (not sure about it).

3. That refers to progress.

E. For many revisionist historians, Christopher Columbus has come to Personify the devastation and enslavement in the name of progress that have decimated the native peoples of the Western Hemisphere.

1. the devastation and enslavement ... to be multiple there must be article the in front of enslavement.

2. the native peoples, I've googled the net and found that article is always used with Native peoples.

For example. Archaeology and the Native Peoples of Tennessee - a permanent exhibit at the Frank H. McClung Museum.

So still not sure which answer to choose?
