(C) an era that transformed it
(D) during which era the city transformed
(E) during which the city was transformed

I choose B between A and B.

I feel D and E is awkward with the phrase "during which".

C has "it" and the meaning is not clear (going by gut feel on this choice).

I narrowed it to B and E. I would go with B. To be honest I don't know why E is wrong. B just 'feels' right.

(B) an era during which the city was transformed

A is wrong...

(C) an era that transformed it .=> era didn't transform
(D) during which era the city transformed => during which
(E) during which the city was transformed => during which

Thanks HIMALAYA!
I was struggling between B and E, and now I'm clear why E is wrong.
