(A) Madagascar was one of the last habitable areas of the earth to undergo human settlement, which has made it
"which" referring to wrong thing.

(B) Madagascar was one of the last habitable areas of the earth to have undergone human settlement, and that has made it
"have undergone" sounds incorrect. Moreover gramatically "that" is referring to "human settlement" however logically that is referring to the process.

(C) Madagascar underwent human settlement as one of the last habitable areas of the earth, which makes it
"which" referring to wrong thing.

(D) Madagascar, one of the last habitable areas of the earth, underwent human settlement, making it
This implies Madagascar underwent human settlement on its own.

(E) Because Madagascar was one of the last habitable areas of the earth to undergo human settlement, it is
Seems OK.

(A) Madagascar was one of the last habitable areas of the earth to undergo human settlement, which has made it (which)
(B) Madagascar was one of the last habitable areas of the earth to have undergone human settlement, and that has made it (that can only refer to the noun preceding it, however in this case it is modifying the clause; also "have undergone" indicates an activity that started in the past and is still continuing on till today (have been)
(C) Madagascar underwent human settlement as one of the last habitable areas of the earth, which makes it (implies that Madagascar underwent human settlement on its own)
(D) Madagascar, one of the last habitable areas of the earth, underwent human settlement, making it (same as C; ",making it" is ok since it is a subordinate clause)
(E) Because Madagascar was one of the last habitable areas of the earth to undergo human settlement, it is (you need to demonstrate why M... is a good place, hence the use of "because" is necessary)

explanations plssss ?
