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 have been decimated
C. devastating and enslaving in the name of progress those native peoples of the Western Hemisphere that have been 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.

We need "have" over here so straight A out; B - "by which" & "been" usage doesnt seem fine to me; C - ing form is WRONG here; D - again the same problem as C; E - seems BEST to me
