(B) A letter by Mark Twain, written in the same year of publication as The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,
(C) A letter by Mark Twain, written in the same year that The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was published,
- good, that clearly refers to year in the second part of comparison.
(D) Mark Twain wrote a letter in the same year as he published The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn that
- now which of the two is revealing, letter or book..
(E) Mark Twain wrote a letter in the same year of publication as The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn that

I will go with C.

The adventures of Huckleberry Finn is singular so the verb must be singular.

A - incorrect verb 'were'
B - passive voice.
D - incorrect use of 'as'
E - passive voice
