A. Approved April 24, 1800, the act of Congress that made provision for the removal of the government of the United States to the new federal city, Washington, D.C., also established
Correct

B. The act of Congress, which was approved April 24, 1800, making provision for the removal of the government of the United States to the new federal city, Washington, D.C., also established
"which was approved April 24, 1800" is incorrect
"making provision for the removal of.." incorrectly modifies "The act of Congress"

C. The act of Congress approved April 24, 1800, which made provision for the removal of the government of the United States to the new federal city, Washington, D.C., and established
Use of "which made provision.." is incorrect
"and established" is incorrect. "also established" should be used

D. Approved April 24, 1800, making provision for the removal of the government of the United States to the new federal city, Washington, D.C., the act of Congress also established
"making provision.." -- misplaced modifier

E. Approved April 24, 1800, the act of Congress made provision for the removal of the government of the United States to the new federal city, Washington, D.C., also establishing
"also establishing" is incorrect

OA is A Thanks for explanations
