subject verb agreement and noun modifier and clause are the issue in this question. Nevertheless, test takers may feel puzzled if they are forced to read the question quickly and cross out the wrong answer at the same time.

There is no better tips than keep practicing.

e) Each of the major setbacks the Germans suffered in June 1944—the fall of Rome, the collapse of Army Group Center on the Eastern Front, and the breach of the Atlantic Wall at Normandy—was a powerful shock

"Each" is singular, therefore we need "was".

Only (E) makes sense. (C) has a wrong list.
