I chose C during GMATPREP test for not very obvious reasons except it was active voice though I had doubt on "from" . Though correct answer .. is A as it ends with since 1788, which is needed for "when"
B - Any is wrong - (their .. has) incorrect
C - From awkward and when should have time etc.
D ..From
E awkward + some of above reasons

I am not sure if "even since" is a right phrase as used in the option A. I think it should be 'ever since' otherwise A would not have any meaning.

Experts - please help.

In A, their refers to objects and sentence structure is correct. I was confused about even since . but i found on other forums that correct question has ever since.

A. Regardless of their form or function, all aerodynamically enhanced, curved objects made for throwing have been called boomerangs by non-Australians ever since 1788,

B. Regardless of their form or function, any aerodynamically enhanced, curved object made for throwing has been called a boomerang by non-Australians even since 1788, - Subject - verb agreement error

C. Ever since 1788, non-Australians have called all aerodynamically enhanced, curved objects made for throwing boomerangs, regardless of their form or function, from - Ambiguous referent for their

D. Ever since 1788, any aerodynamically enhanced, curved object made for throwing has been called a boomerang by non-Australians, regardless of its form or function, from

E. Non-Australians have called all aerodynamically enhanced, curved objects made for throwing boomerang ever since 1788, regardless of their form or function, from
