in B we have a plural "figurines" which does not go with "has nearly doubled the number "

The problem I have with E is that I have always thought that "during" has to appear with a specific time. Ex.- during one year, during Prehistoric era, etc. and never in phrases such as I drank a lot during my birthday, or I will meet my cousin during holidays.
Could anybody clarify?

Nobody is going to clarify this?
And aside from that...

...was has nearly doubled the number is not the discovery (as E says), but the 21 ceramic figurines themselves (as in B).

Please, thoughts on that.
Thanks!

at the excavating - Idiomatically wrong, so choice B & C are out.
D. Ceramic dog figurines, twenty-one of which were discovered during excavating
Correct idiom used, but reflects The Ceramic d Figurines have doubled but not the discoveries.hence wrong
E. The discovery of twenty-one ceramic dog figurines during the excavation - Correct, as it indicates discoveries of TCDFs has doubled.

Do we have a meaning error in

B Twenty-one ceramic dog figurines discovered at the excavation

or only Subject Verb issue?( non underlined part has 'has' in it)

B is wrong on many counts. 'at the excavation' is idiomatically wrong. should be 'during'.

for the 'has' part": should've been 'have'. so there is definitely a SV error. apart from that:

21 ceramic dog figurines themselves haven't doubled the artifcats. 'the discovery' of these 21 ceramic... 'has' doubled these artifacts.

so B is definitely incorrect.

Sorry @jumsumtak... But I don't think 'at the excavation' is wrong... :kisswink it means at the excavation place ... but yes we can go ahead and discard this option using
sub+verb issue as pointed by You :clap:

For me this question it is all about the meaning
what "has nearly doubled the number of these artifacts known to exists"
the Twenty-one ceramic dog or the DISCOVERY OF Twenty-one ceramic dog
So its E

That twenty-one ceramic dog figurines were discovered during the excavating of a 1000 year old Hohokam village in Tempe, Arizona, has nearly doubled the number of these artifacts known to exists.

A. That twenty-one ceramic dog figurines were discovered during the excavating
B. Twenty-one ceramic dog figurines discovered at the excavation
C. Discovering Twenty-one ceramic dog figurines at the excavating
D. Ceramic dog figurines, twenty-one of which were discovered during excavating
E. The discovery of twenty-one ceramic dog figurines during the excavation

--> E is OA. you should pay attention in the last clause. HAS is NOT suitable with A,B and D.
C is idiomatic --> Discovering & the excavating
So E is the best choice!
