I would go with E.

"it" could have better than "them"

edit:

E is right, coz "it" has already been used in the sentence.

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


Napoleon's army - singular (see highlighted part). Only E has no plural pronoun. So, by POE E.[/u]

A question for you Guys:

How can E be correct?
Isnt it comparing supplies to previous campaign?

Ellipsis. To restate "it had" twice in the same sentence would be redundant.

No it is not. Because it uses "than FOR any previous campaign". FOR makes the comparison proper.

(C) they had for any previous campaign - PLural
(D) in their previous campaigns - Their is plural.
(E) for any previous campaign - Choose this . dont thinkk if its correct or wrong :)
