"Nineveh", not "archaeologists", was the city, so eliminate C, D, E.

In A, "having no physical evidence" incorrectly refers to "Nineveh". It should refer to "archaeologists"

In B, "who" correctly refer to "archaeologists".

If we remove the part between the commas, it will read as:"
Now thought to have been an actual historical city, Nineveh was long dismissed ... ...

Thus we can cancel out C, D, and E as actual historical city refers to Nineveh and not archaeologists.

Among A and B,

In A, "having no physical evidence" refers to "Nineveh" whereas it must refer to "archaeologists". Eliminate

In B, "who" correctly refers to "archaeologists". Selected

Ans = B
