IMO is E

A,B,C,D are wrong because "they" or "their" has no referent

E because the other choices have "they" in them; army is singular and referred to as "it" in the last portion of 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

I also agree it should be "E" because in all the questions "they" is present whereas army is represented by "it" in the non underlined part of the section

Hi

Army is a collective noun & hence singular. It cant be reffered with a plural pronoun like they or their. Hence E is the correct option.

Yes, it should be E because of the grammatical errors in all the others.
