A is awkward because there's just too much between manifestations and the word 'were'
In B, 'shown' is redundant; manifestation is itself used to convey demonstration
C is out because few examples use 'of' and the rest don't
D again is out because of 'shown'
Check out E
In the first period of religious reformism, Islamic political militancy was manifested in the rise of the
Wahhabis in Arabia, the Sanusi in Cyrenaica, the Fulani in Nigeria, and the Mahdi in the Sudan, and in

parallel!

well, only reading is enough to solve this question. All options are awkward except Option E. therefore answer is E

Also Option A, B,C,D all contains "manifestations were of" which is a wrong use.

In the first period of religious reformism- correctly modifies "Islamic political militancy" in E. Other options have basic modifier problem. Heck of a long question!

Expert's post
The most important thing note in this topic is the use of ‘and’ in a list or series parallelism case as this.

There are two effects of the manifestations i.e. 1. The rise 2. The victory. Both are two independedrt factors and each has to maintain its norms of list //ism. The rise has four arms, namely the Wahabis, the Sansui, the Fulani and then the fourth and the last one the Mahdi, which has to be conjugated with “a comma + and ”. If you closely watch, only E uses “the comma and the and” after the Fulani in Nigeria and that is the reason it is the answer.

The second factor ‘the victory’ is an independent one, and after all a rise is different from a victory and it has to be again separated by ‘an and’
