correct choice must have " was" . Between B and D, B maintains parallelism. Go for B.

"Among" is singular, so the correct S-V agreement is "was."

(B) flows just fine.

B

Anger is singular so A, C, E are out

D is awkward/wordy

B

the subject is "anger" here, which is singular.

I think this construction always hold: "Among.. plural...., singular....".

Picking B.
Singular subject 'anger' needs a singular verb 'was'.
This leaves B and D.
In B correct ||ism is maintained.
' was anger for repeatedly raising the issue and preventing the raw wounds from earlier battles from ever beginning to heal '

Going with 'was' as 'anger' is one of the many emotions...

D --> awkard by taking out 'still raw' and placing it seperately from wounds...

B is best.

Here the subject is "anger" so wee need a singular verb. Just like this :

Among all the students, Mary is the most hard-working.

So, we are left with B and D.

D is seperated by commas too much and it is not clear what we are talking about. It lost its clarity.

So, B is my choice.

"repeatedly raising ....over and over" ---> redundant --> eliminate A and D!
"anger" is singular so the correct choice must contain "was" --> eliminate C and E.

B avoids these evils and also maintain parallelism "raising and preventing"
B it is

Will go with B.

Repeatedly and over and over is redundant.

Subject is singular hence was is correct.
