I second Brajesh.
Either use 'contemporaries of Tubman' or ' Tubman's contemporaries'.

'D' it is.
Also it is correct to say '... maintained that she had ...'

she has should be as per the verb maintained

Hence I go for D

My Logic,

A is not correct.
B is having problem
Quote:
Has and Maintained donot match

C is not correct. Beauseing it is trying to have one verb as Present perfect and another
Quote:
Has
is Past tense
E is not correct because it is having Past perfect
Quote:
and has Present Perfect.

Regards,
Praveen

^ D ^

as buzzgaurav said we should use either 'contemporaries of Tubman' or ' Tubman's contemporaries'.

also D is || in tense.
