I picked (E)



A. who, led by Attila the Hun, demonstrated his military superiority
This wrongly says "Hunnish troops demonstrated his military superiority..."

B. which, led by Attila the Hun, demonstrated their military superiority
Same as above with "which". I believe "military superiority" should refer to a "person" instead

C. that Attila the Hun led, who demonstrated his military superiority
Grammatically incorrect

D. that Attila the Hun led in demonstration of their miltary superiority
Awkward

E. that were led by Attila the Hun, who demonstrated his miltary superiority
Correctly says "Hunnish troops were led by Attila the Hun" and "Attila the Hun demonstrated his miltary superiority..."



Let me know if I am wrong.

definitely close call between B/E. I will go with B. the troops demonstrate their miliary superiority over a weaken city. this make more sense as a comparsion (troops over a wekened city). I have my question on the placement of which.

OA?

there is confusion in this question.
Only B and E are left.
The logic in E is quite ridiculous. ",who demonstrated..." is redundant, so E changes the whole meaning of the sentence.
Also, B is clearer than E.
