D here makes the most sense... the fact the Tony was a scholar is apparent from his books

E comes close, but "which" has problem referring to Balkans

D.
'is' apparent is the correct usage.
B/W D and E, D is correct.

D is the best choice here.
Maintains S-V agreement and gives a clear meaning.

I had to read it a bunch of times but I'll go with D. Only C & D are possibilities, and 'is' is the correct tense for the verb.

IMO, Punctuation is not tested on the GMAT

Besides - "of Byzantium and of the modern Balkans" is a compound and shouldn't be separated by comma... of the modern Balkans is not a "by-the-way" information to warrant being put aside by commas IMO.
