Hi Experts, Could anyone explain in a bit detail the usage of rule in the following question:

Q:Archaeologists in Egypt have excavated a 5,000-year-old wooden hull that is the earliest surviving example of example of a “built” boat—in other words, a boat constructed out of planks fitted together—and that thus represents a major advance, in terms of boat-building technology, over the dugout logs and reed vessels of more ancient vintage. A. together—and that thus represents B. together—and this has represented C. together, and it represents D. together that was representing E. together to represent

The overall question is basically split into 2 parts - the first part explains about a boat 5000 years ago being found out, and the second compares its advancement compared to even more older boats.

The second choice is wrong because of the usage - "THIS HAS" because the usage is unclear as to what has proved the significant advancement. Is it finding the boat? Or Is it the boat being built 5000 years ago?

The 3rd,4th and 5th choice is wrong again for the same reason mentioned above as the usage - "AND IT" or "THAT WAS" or "TO" are incorrect and unclear.

I am a starter too so please correct me if I am wrong.
