tough choice between A and C for me.

I think it's A, although I can't explain.

Even I think it is A and not D.

I think for D to be correct it needs to be framed as follows:

" No two quarries are alike, and each requires a degree of study in its own to interpret what went on in the past"

Please correct me (as I know I am wrong)

I would like to know what pushed you to insert "in its own" after "degree of study". What is the reasoning?

A is perfect but in ''its'' own right... but what it tends to neglect is the ''specific'' aspect of''each'' of the quarries...

where as D clarifies the ambiguity when it says ''each'' where it refers each of the two quarries...

hope that helps!

D makes it sound like - each quary requires a degree of study

This is exactly the case. Each quary does require a degree of study.

whoa! stolyar is back with his mind piercing SCs.

D clearly suggests that 'each' quarry requires a degree of study. A seems like referring to one particular quarry.
