C it is
A and B have misplaced modifier problem
In D and E, "it" does not properly associate action of "assuming" to the Europeans

Clearly C.

Eaten in (what is Eaten), Tomato is the right construction that addresses modifier issue.

We have C, D E now. D sounds as though tomato is suspicious - not right. So D is out.

E has 'it' - what does it refer to - Europeans or tomato? Wrong.

C is clean. No pronoun issues or modifier issues.[/i]

C ..trying to twist the meaning is a good approach.

D when it was assumed used passive voice. Whenever, there is active voice and passive voice, active voice will always preferred than passive voice.

D is wrong because it changes the meaning of the original sentence. It says that the tomato was viewed with suspicion and it was assumed. The "and" here is an distorter.
