The sentence has verb issue: “Powers of observation” is plural and requires plural verb – eliminate A,B and C
(A) makes his letters as a group the rival of
(B) makes his letters as a group one to rival
(C) makes his letters a group rivaling
(D) make his letters as a group the rival of [Hold it]
(E) make his letters a group which is the rival of [ which incorrectly modifies group – requires letters – eliminate it]
