General Wolfe answered the French sentry in French, and thus the young officer tragically mistook the enemy ship as one of his own, and let Wolfe and his men slip past him to victory at Quebec.

A as one of his own, and let Wolfe
B as his own, and let Wolfe
C for one of his own, leaving Wolfe
D for one of his own, and let Wolfe
E to be his own, leaving Wolfe

The correct answer is D. The correct idiom is mistake X for Y. Thus, we can eliminate A and B for the incorrect mistake X as Y. E uses the incorrect mistake X to be Y, and therefore should also be discarded. As well, both B and E say his own, which incorrectly suggests the ship belonged to the French officer. Additionally, both C and E inappropriately use leaving rather than and let, making the rest of the sentence ungrammatical.
