Many of the earliest known images of Hindu deities in India date from the time of the
Kushan empire, fashioned either from the spotted sandstone of Mathura or Gandharan
grey schist.
A. empire, fashioned either from the spotted sandstone of Mathura or
B. empire, fashioned from either the spotted sandstone of Mathura or from
C. empire, either fashioned from the spotted sandstone of Mathura or
D. empire and either fashioned from the spotted sandstone of Mathura or from
E. empire and were fashioned either from the spotted sandstone of Mathura or from

i agree with the logic of the answer. However, am confused with the tenses. "date from the time" is present tens. option E is past.. I dint opt for E just for this 1 reason. Can anybody explain this? Thanks

Here the sentence demands the use of both the present and past tense .The first part of the sentence(Many of the earliest known images of Hindu deities in India date from the time of the
Kushan empire) denotes a fact which hold true even in the present,hence it requires the use of present tense .The 2nd part(images where fashioned in the past and it denotes a past action )
Hope it helps !!

Agree with E.

This is a modifier problem.

This is the explaination I was specifically looking for to understand the correction from the "Verb-Tense" perspective also...In the second part the act of making(fashioning) happened in the past...Thanks.
