Answer choice A, B and C could be eliminated on the grounds of wrong tense. The sentence is in Simple past tense while choice A, B and C are in present tense.
Now, we need to understand a concept. “Believe X to be Y” is correct, but “believe in X to be Y” does not make sense "Believe in" means "to have faith in" - with "believe in", "to be ..." does not go. So, Choice D is wrong. Hence, E is the answer.
