I've a question - C stands out from the rest for sure, but "in its return of 1910–1911" isn't this structure bit awkward?
Sometimes a grammatically correct sentence might sound awkward, most probably because we are not used to a particular usage in our colloquial language.
For this reason, it is not advisable to identify errors based on how a sentence sounds.
This sentence presents a clear comparison and both the entities (in no other historical sighting
and in its return of 1910-1911
) are clearly parallel.
Therefore option C is the correct answer.
Also, since this is an official sentence, we can learn from this sentence that this usage is correct.
Hope this helps.
