Black History Month observed in February, he month of Lincolnâ€™s birthday and the generally accepted month of Frederick Douglassâ€™ birth, since they were each primary figures in the abolition of slavery
(A) since they were each
(B) who were both
(C) because both men were
(D) both of whom were
(E) each of whom was one of the
(A) since they were each -
'Since' stands for time not reason. 'Because' would be more appropriate. Furthermore, the pronoun 'each' does not agree with plural noun Primary figures.
(B) who were both - Relative pronoun 'who' seems to refer to Lincoln's Birthday and accepted month of Frederick Douglassâ€™ birth. This is wrong, as who should refer to people.
C) This is it
D) both of whom were - similar problem like in B. Here 'whom' refers to birthdays, not people
E) each of whom was one of the - similar problem like in E. Here 'whom' refers to birthdays, not people
