The underlined part of the sentence after "land" should modify the term "communal ownership of land" B does it the best.

(A) land, to what had been a pre-Columbian form of ownership respected by the Spaniards
Correct. "to what had been" is parallel to "to communal ownership of land"

(B) land, a form of ownership of the pre-Columbians and respected by the Spaniards
"and respected by the Spaniards" is a misplaced modifier, as it does not modify "communal ownership of land"

(C) land, respected by the Spaniards and a pre-Columbian form of ownership
Misplaced modifiers:
"respected by the Spaniards" is supposed to reference "communal ownership of land", not the land itself (unclear)
"and a pre-Columbian form of ownership" is a misplaced modifier, as it does not modify "communal ownership of land"

(D) land in which a pre-Columbian form of ownership was respected by the Spaniards
"in which" results in awkward construction (Read: "..return to communal ownership of land in which a pre-Columbian form of ownership was respected by the Spaniards")

(E) land that had been a pre-Columbian form of ownership respected by the Spaniards
Awkward construction, similar to (D)

This is the second time i repeated the same mistake in this question

Marked E
land that had been .... sounded gud to me
But if im left with A and E i will surely select E
how to eliminate E since to what had been iin A stops me from selecting this option

Is there any strategy???????????
