I agree with your explanations, but can 'who' refer to tribes, which is not a person??? OA? Cheers

wasn't too sure of a use of 'who' for a tribe but then only C is bit cleaner.

I'm between C and E, and for the "who" reason I would pick the E, though it is a little awkward... OA please

Solution:
C it is..

Why ? Here you go:
you have "other tribes" after the sentences and since its plural, between wont work.. So A and D ruled out.
Thus, either of B, C or E.

Now, B is incorrect cos it uses each other..
Out of C and E, C stands out as the better choice..

the ", ING modifier" modifies the entire previous clause. Here we need to modify only tribes. Hence D and E are incorrect.

Between A, B and C......

"interact with" is the correct idiom.

"interact among" is unidiomatic. Also, "among each other" is unidiomatic.

"among themselves" or "between themselves" is correct idiom.

That leaves only B.

Lot of new things to learn from this sentence.

I think you meant C. Awesome explanation !

among each other ----> "each other" is used for two things. "among" is used for more than two things.
So this is nonsensical. B is OUT that leaves C as the answer.

I still have a doubt here..

"interacted with one another" indicates that there are only two people in the picture.
Much of a same reason as "between" to eliminate.

Cheers!

yes.
why?
Because GMAC considers this correct. you should not question GMAC's point of view.

Should be either 'among themselves' or 'with one another' as there are more than two tribes in a confederacy.

If there were only two tribes in a confederacy, we could write between themselves or with each other.

Pkit, do you know other "things" that can be used with "who"?
