"a pamphlet" is referred wrong in A,B.
The sentence is in "Subjunctive mood" so, we need that in the sentence. So, C is out.
We have "for .... and for .... " parallelism in the sentence which is not followed in D and correctly followed in E.
So, E is the correct answer.
Thanks.

The arguments given in the pamphlet need to be presented in parallel. E accomplishes this by by stating the pamphlet "argued FOR Charles I..." and "FOR peace....".

A & B make it seem like the English Subject was the one arguing.
C & D are not parallel.

Answer: E

A and B are incorrect
It appears that william is arguing in a pamphlet
Doesn't make sense
So out

C and D
C) a pamphlet advocating greater parliamentary powers from Charles I
D) a pamphlet advocating that Charles I give more power to Parliament

It appears that pamphlet itself is advocating ...can pampblet advocate itself ..no so c and D are out


E) a pamphlet that argued for Charles I to give more power to Parliament

This seems to be correct as it correctly refers what pamphlet does so correct.a lso usage of "and for" parallelism is correct here

Give kudos if it helps

A. Incorrect because verb-ing action modifier modifies previous action. And out here publishing is not the reason of arguing.
B. Incorrect because verb-ing action modifier modifies previous action. And out here publishing is not the reason of arguing.
C. Incorrect because list compared using "and" conjunction is not parallel
D. Incorrect because list compared using "and" conjunction is not parallel
E. Correct , its a noun+noun modifier which correctly modifies book i.e. noun from previous clause and last two entity joined by and conjunction are in parallel list.
