The record of the past is always incomplete, and the historian who writes about it inevitably reflects the preoccupations of their own time.

(A) the historian who writes about it inevitably reflects
(B) the historian writing about it will inevitably reflect
(C) a historian writing about it inevitably reflects
(D) writing about it, it is inevitable for historians to reflect
(E) historians in writing about it inevitable reflect

My Answer is D
Official Answer is E

A) incorrect because singular 'the historian' does not agree with plural 'their'
B) incorrect for the same
C) incorrect for the same
E) incorrect because 'inevitable' should function as an adverb to 'reflect'
Thats left us with only choice D.

I agree. The choice E (OA) should have "inevitably", not "inevitable"
(E) historians in writing about it inevitably reflect

Choice(D) is changes the intended meaning and also grammatically incorrect.
"inevitable for historians to reflect" is nonsensical in this context.
