So,here is my approach to the above problem.

Each of--when acts as a subject --it will demand a singular verb

A.is out for Each --will not take plural verb were.

B. Not a good construction...X,Y,Z--each of them Z's ..I would prefer a more direct and concise way..Z's son - X,Y,Z
C.Looks fine..subject is Joe Kennedy sons takes plural verb were

D. again its Boys--was--Subject Verb agreement issue+ plus constrution issue..(as pointed in B)

E.Competitive and confident boys—Joe Jr., Jack, Robert, and Teddy—every one of Joe Kennedy's sons were[/quote]
again construction issue..also its confusing whether we have


Press Kudos if it helps!!
