What was troubling me in 'A ' is to him in between, is this right and why is it so? Shouldn't it have been at the end of the sentence?i.e. the land that symbolized the possibility of freedom to him.

B and C make it sound like the freedom is for the author.

D - incorrect use of non-essential - "which"

Also, D and E are awkward.

Ans : A for me.

D and E are out -> 'black's returning' and 'black's return' is awkard
C -> 'which was the land' suggests that Africa is no longer a land of freedom
B -> appears to be suggesting at a particular part of Africa

A is best.

Elim D and E

B doesnt make sense b/c its unclear what is symbolizing the freedom, the return of the Blacks or the African land?

C I almost picked this b/c which does refer to its proper referent. However, A says what C does in a much shorter way. Also I'm not sure if the last part of the sentence is essential or not. If it is essential then which is incorrect.

A it is.
