I wud go with E.

My reasons-

Some buildings that were destroyed and heavily damaged in the earthquake last year were constructed. >

b. Some buildings that were destroyed and heavily damaged in the earthquake last year had been constructed

e.Last year some of the buildings that were destroyed and heavily damaged in the earthquake had been constructed


Since two actions occurred (destruction and construction), verbs listed should be in two different tenses..hence A is wrong.

Now, B and E.
Both use "had been"..which implies that the task of construction already occurred sometime in the past. (if it was still being constructed, the verb "have been" wud be used).

So, construction occurred sometime back..last year!..option E makes it clear that the building was built last year..building was destroyed sometime before last year.

How? maketh sense??

B wud be correct if it ended in "have been"
