shores of .... sounds better than shores in ....

(B)"of an America" sounds wrong...But in (E) "of the America where a population" sounds also wrong to me...

I would choose E for no apparent reason

"of an America" is wrong in B
A says immigrants entered the USA with a population, still, more than 90% rural.

Actually we can use the similar ways to understand B & E
B: "of an America whose ..." we can understand that "an America" here is different from another whose population was 70% rural and from another whose population was 50% rural.
E: dj used a similar way at E "A says immigrants entered the USA with a population, still, more than 90% rural"

However B makes more sense.

QA : "B" why not "A"?
Anyone can explain? Why do we have to put "was" behind in B?
