My vote for E
(A) that the North American Indians have developed advanced full-year calendars basing them
"have developed" is not correct
(B) of the North American Indians who have developed advanced full-year calendars and based them
same as A
(C) of the development of advanced full-year calendars by North American Indians, basing them
not clear who/what "them" refers to
(D) of the North American Indians and their development of advanced full-year calendars based
implies that the calendar stick was the first evidence of existence of the North American Indians
(E) that the North American Indians developed advanced full-year calendars based
My choice

Straight E.

A,B,C are out because of "basing them".

D is out because of "first evidence of the North American Indians"
