Kuru, one of the strangest and most insidious of the diseases known, is no longer a major problem in New Guinea.
(A) of the diseases known
(B) of the diseases to be known
(C) of the diseases that is known
(D) known of the diseases
(E) diseases known
I would choose E. Simplify the sentence you'll get:
Kuru, one of the deseases known, is ....
When you see "one of" you know it is one of a group of things which should be represented by a plaural noun.
For A, it simplify to this:
Kuru, one of the strangest [something] of the diseases known, ...
You need a noun after the word "strangest" otherwise "strangest" is missing a word to modify. _________________
