Between A & B I choose A.

"What" makes sense here and the logical link between Pre-Columbian and Spaniards is not really clear in B...

My choice is 'D'.
I eliminated 'A' because I have not seen a sentence in the form of 'to what had been a....'. Going through the above posts makes me wonder whether my assumption is wrong but anyway I will stick to my choice and wait for the OA.

1. to what had been a pre-Columbian form of ownership respected by the Spaniards is // to to communal ownership of land.
2. As a consequence, after the word land a pause is required.
3. what indicates that the pre-Columbian form of ownership respected by the Spaniards is the communal ownership of land.

Hope it all makes sense.

I accidentally wrote down 'D' instead of 'E', my choice was 'E'

The OA is A.

Oxon, many many thanks for your detailed explanation. I understood this Sc almost, except one thing- when exactly do we use "to what had been"?? and why does this phrase require the use of "to'??
