OPTION A
-Has sailed shows that action started in the past and has recently finished , which is not the case i.e the he has not finished sailing. emperor is still SAILING.So we can not use has sailed
OPTION B-He has spotted means , emperor spotted the location in the past and that action is still in effect. But the meaning is something different. While he was sailing he spotted
OPTION C-You can check reasons above as mentioned.....
OPTION D-Correct usage of tenses
OPTION E-Was sailing about 600 miles not correct way to write....

Lets solve this using vertical split.Clearly there is a vertical split of 2:3
has in not the correct verb for the event in the past
A and C are out
in E from is unidomatic
B is run on sentence

D is best
