A - seems awkward because of the whole “Canada was Canada” part, which seems to be the very definition of redundancy
B - it was a - The pronoun it here has no clear antecedent.
C It was a - The pronoun it here has no clear antecedent here again.
D was what was - a confusing and erroneous sentence that doesn’t maintain the original meaning.
E Canada was what had been known as a vast wilderness: The verb tense eliminates this from contention, as it no longer works with the non-underlined potion.

I don't get why some institutions consistently copy questions in OG.

It doesn't benefit learners at all if they have already seen such questions in OG.

Below is the question that I'm talking about

In the minds of many people living in England, before Australia was Australia, it was the antipodes, the opposite pole to civilization, an obscure and unimaginable place that was considered the end of the world.
(A) before Australia was Australia, it was the antipodes
(B) before there was Australia, it was the antipodes
(C) it was the antipodes that was Australia
(D) Australia was what was the antipodes
(E) Australia was what had been known as the antipodes
