Hi...

Errors

1) placement of 'last month's
'last month' has to modify 'quality check', so eliminate all other choices.
Eliminate B and C
2) tense
The assembly was done prior to the quality check.
Has been is wrong. Eliminate D
3) that was assembled should directly refer to equipment.
A is out

E

(A) " last month" placement...quality check happened last month ?? or declaration done in last month---meaning error
(B) placement of "During the quality check"---changes meaning
(C & D) tense error

The situation has a double past, so we require a HAD BEEN. Left with choice C and E as the possible answer, we can eliminate choice C as it distorts the intended meaning of the sentence.

E
