Hi sayantanc2k

I have one question for choice (E).

For construction of the form -
[subject][verb][object]........ ;
[subject][verb][object].........

should n't the subject of the second independent clause must be same as/pronoun to the subject of the first independent clause ?
If so, subject of first independent clause - "Lancastrians" is not same as pronoun it[The Battle of Bosworth Field] .

Can you please help me eliminate Option E?

You know E is actually the correct answer right? (albeit this isn't a great question and if we are not being extremely picky, B can also be right)

When you have clause;clause, this doesn't necessarily mean the pronoun in the latter clause MUST refer to the subject. If it does, we have better parallelism.
The only thing this construction requires is some sort of link between the two clauses.

CORRECT: I like this girl; she's fairly interesting.
WRONG: I like this girl; the flowers on her head are endearing. (The relationship is way too weak here)
