A looks ok.

comma before conjunction "since" seperates subordinate clause from main clause.
B - idiom between X and Y (not between X to Y)
C/D tense change.
E. Meaning problem

it can only be A or C because :

- the idiom is "between X and Y"
- the subject is plural (poll taxes)
- E is weird (past perfect + the effect of disfranchising)

My first pick was C but then I've realized that in the original sentence they are talking about a certain period of time (1889->1901) that is over now so the preterit tense should be better.

so A

none of the ACs are correct. A would be correct if it had "beccause" or "for" instead of "since". and i really donot know whether "since" does the same job as because/for does.

Another confusing question from kaplan. guys, be aware..... :twisted:

A is correct.

between x and y is correct idiom
all the parts of the sentences are in simple past tense.
