The capital of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Sarajevo’s population on the eve of the First World War was 51,919.

The capital of X , ______ (in this blank space after the comma the name of the capital must come)
if not, then it should come after a auxillary verb such as "is".
also , since the capital had (xyz) population should come after a modifier which can refer back to the NAME of the capital.


(A) Bosnia-Herzegovina, Sarajevo’s population
" Sarajevo’s population" is not the name of the capital
(B) Bosnia-Herzegovina is Sarajevo, whose population
correct- "whose" is clearly reffering to the Sarajevo about the population.
(C) Bosnia-Herzegovina is Sarajevo, with a population
with is reffering to "the capital" but when the name of the capital (Sarajevo) id present we need to modify it deirectly-incorrect
(D) Bosnia-Herzegovina, Sarajevo having a population that
having-incorrect
(E) Bosnia-Herzegovina, the population of Sarajevo
two IC so cant be left just like that-incorrect
