A )they had in their previous campaigns
C) they had for any previous campaign
D )in their previous campaigns
E )for any previous campaign

After the comma the sentence says, "it had provisions..." It is referring to "Napoleon's army", which is singular, so the underlined portion has to agree. The only answer choice which doesn't say "they' or "their" is E.
