(A) they had in their previous campaigns
(C) they had for any previous campaign
(D) in their previous campaigns - their is not correct here. Napoleon's army and their - pronoun error
(E) for any previous campaign

Army is singular so eliminate a,b,c.Why is the answer e?Is'nt "d " better?

E is the best. Rest four of the answer choices have 'their' or 'they'.

What is wrong with (B)?

Isn't their in B referring to campaigns?

OG claims that it refers to army, I fail to see that.

Only choice E is correct, I missed that one as well.

I went with D, but i see my mistake (thanks to rajeevrks27 explanation).

A, B & C are wrong because Napleon's Army is singular.

Edit: add D to that too.

Although Napoleon’s army entered Russia with far more supplies than they had in their previous campaigns, it had provisions for only twenty-four days.

(A) they had in their previous campaigns
Army is a collective noun thus its referent has to be singular.
Same error here
(C) they had for any previous campaign
Same error here
(D) in their previous campaigns
Same error here
(E) for any previous campaign
Looking good.

Hi abid1986,

'For' here is used on behalf of the supply.

Army entered Russia with far more supplies than for any previous campaign.

Say the Army had 1200 ammunition(supply) 'FOR' its first campaign....
Say the Army had 1500 ammunition(supply) 'FOR' its second campaign....

and when the Army entered Russia, it had 1700 ammunition(supply), which is far more than the ammunition(supply) for any of its previous campaign.

I hope it is clear now.

Correct me if I am wrong somewhere.

Dear Abid,

We can surely discuss the use of "for" in the correct sentence. However, before we do so, I would like to request you to kindly me send your meaning and error analysis of the original sentence. If, while solving the question, you marked some other choice as the correct answer, then I would like to request you to kindly post your analysis of that choice as well. Your analyses will provide me with an opportunity to understand your thought process and guide the discussion accordingly. Hope you'll appreciate the same.

Also, I would like to recommend that you go through the full-length video solution to this question. It is available on our blog here:https://e-gmat.com/blogs/?cat=45&paged=4

Thanks,

Neeti.
