I choose C too

A "it is know" is awkward, tense is not appropriate
B : exactly the same
C : sounds ok
D : that refers to date, improper tense
E : weird

out of the five C sounds relativley good.
But can someone explain if "Date at which" is idiomatic ..it just didn't sound too good to me.

I also like A. What is wrong with A? And is it proper to say "..date at which humans are known to have made"?

Please explain.

I'd choose C too. I think "at which" is preferable to "when". Humans are known to be doing something also sounds better than it is known that humans does something.

C for me too. " when " in A sounds awkward. C seems right when put back in the original statement.

Pick bt B and C for "at which". And (C) for "human's are known" vs "it is known".
