Hi Anuram,

I am fully stumped by this query.

I am going ahead with A. Every thing else except A &B ,has some kind of ambiguity.

A - indicates the sense of timing between communal ownership and pre-Columbian form of ownership. Thus, it looks correct.
B - too much simplified and the sense of timing is gone because of the removal of "to what had been".
C - the order of "respected by the Spaniards and a pre-Columbian form of ownership" is not ood.
D - distorts the meaning. "in which" has ambiguous reference.
E - 'that' has ambiguous reference to either land or communal ownership

Do let me know OA.
