For many revisionist historians, Christopher Columbus has come to personify devastation and enslavement in the name of progress that has decimated native peoples of the Western Hemisphere.

A - devastation and enslavement in the name of progress that has decimated native peoples of the Western Hemisphere

B - devastation and enslavement in the name of progress by which native peoples of the Western Hemisphere decimated

C - devastating and enslaving in the name of progress those native peoples of the Western Hemisphere which in the name of progress are decimated.

D - devastating and enslaving those native peoples of the western Hemisphere which in the name of progress are decimated.

E - the devastation and enslavement in the name of progress that have decimated the native peoples of the Western Hemisphere.

There is an argument about A and E. What is the antecedent of that? (progress or the devastation and enslavement)
Which one is the right answer???

This is one of the most controversial SCs floating around the club. Some say (A) others, including myself, say (E). Maybe both are correct??

I picked A as well because I think the sentence is referring to progress which is singular, so it needs a "has"

Anyways, I will be waiting for OA.... and some more explainations
