Hi..

look at the 3-2 split first

1) IT vs HIM
the knights were to join " the order of golden fleece", so pronoun should be IT and not him
B and D eliminated

2) a crusade to east vs eastern crusade..
as per meaning a crusade to the east is correct
C eliminated

3) parallelism
the three items are noun..
uncompromising fealty, devotion and a commitment

Only D left

I have a doubt -

If I read the sentence as below :

Original sentence - In 1430, Duke Philip the Good of Burgundy founded the Order of the Golden Fleece, demanding from the 24 knights nominated to join it uncompromising fealty, devotion to the glory of God, and to defend the Christian faith, if need be, by going on a crusade to the East.

To be read as - In 1430, Duke Philip the Good of Burgundy founded the Order of the Golden Fleece, demanding uncompromising fealty, devotion to the glory of God, and to defend the Christian faith, if need be, by going on a crusade to the East, from the 24 knights nominated to join him/it.

Can you help me understand selection between him/it ?
