My pick is E only because A through D the incorrect pronoun (they, their) is used when IT should have been used as evident in "it had provisions for only twenty-four days."

Yes...E is right

Army is singular...Also "it" was used in the end of the sentence....But none of the answer choices have "it" and so avoid plural pronouns...E is left out

E. army is singular, they or their is inapproperiate here. So only E meets this req.

E for me too. "they" is ambiguous with reference to noun it refers to and "for" is the right preposition.
