A it is.

Go with parallelism. In the non-underlined part we have "who dwelt" to modify "the supreme being was Esaugetu Emissee"

A. in which the sky was the floor, and who had the power to give and to take -> who || who
B. where the sky was the floor, having the power to give and to take -> Having is def the wrong modifier to use.
C. whose floor was the sky, and who has the power of giving and of taking - WHOSE is modifying realm. Realm itself had the sky as the floor? - No sir. of giving and of taking very awkard.
D. in which the sky was the floor, with the power of giving and taking -> "with the power" is not || to anything.
E. whose floor was the sky, having the power to give and take -> same as B and D!
