D.

Eliminate A, B, and C because Tubman doesn't need the 's

Eliminate E because (apart from being awkward) "had maintained" is inconsistent with "has"; her contemporaries still maintained the awesome qualities that she had at the time, and presumably never changed their minds. Plus, they're all dead.

Ok, that's how I thought it out.

of X's = okay though awkward.
that of X = correct
of X = correct

Baki sub manipulation.

(B) Tubman’s maintained that she had
(C) Tubman’s have maintained that she had
(D) Tubman maintained that she had
(E) Tubman had maintained that she has


A, B, C are out straight (possessive problem)

Between D & E

E has tense issue (past perfect matched with present; events are not matching)
D the earlier past action (had all the....) is in the past perfect tense, while the later past action is in the simple past tense (maintained)
hence D

Narrowed down to D and E...

E is not consistent...had maintained,,,,she has.... ---> sounds awkward,,,

IMO D
