IMO C

A was the only one of - verbose ; alone among sounds better

B when they sided - distorts meaning .

C right

D were ?? - wrong

E had sided - wrong (past perfect tense not required)

C. A has an error, only one of the five is redundant. Only means only one, there is no need of one of..

I will go with C.

A)
the Oneida was the only one of the five-nation Iroquois League who sided with the colonists

here "who" modifies five-nation Iroquoise League.
--> five-nation Iroquoise League sided the colonists...
+
Oneida was only one of them..
Is this possible??
5 nations sided colonists..
Oneida was only one nation sided colonists..

Statement contradicting itself...

Will go with C.

alone "among the five-nation Iroquois League " sided colonists..

I bet this must be C..

Suresh but what does "alone among the five-nation Iroquois League sided colonists" mean. I feel there is something missing before "sided" it must be

"alone among the five-nation Iroquois League who/that sided colonists"

I feel A makes much more sense and who refereeing to "the Oneida"

I'd go with A)

C. alone among the five-nation Iroquois League sided

Bold doesn't really make sense.

Answer C;

A. was the only one of the five-nation Iroquois League who sided [ “Who” modifies “the Oneida” and paced far off it – eliminate it]
B. was alone of the five-nation Iroquois League when they sided [ They cannot refer to Singular “the Oneida” – eliminate it]
C. alone among the five-nation Iroquois League sided [Hold it]
D. were the only ones out of the five nations of Iroquois League in siding [ Verb “were” cannot refer to Singular “the Oneida” – eliminate it]
E. only of the five-nation Iroquois League had sided [ In correct Past Perfect – eliminate it]
