Not quite sure what is the subject of "derive". Any explanations would be appreciated.

".........both the northern and southern indian alphabets derive from the almaic script. This script came with..........."

this would be my re-write of the sentence.

So, it is C.
if it had from which were derived, A would be correct.

The obvious error in E is ambiguous use of two "it". Also, "deriving" distorts the meaning.

1. why B is wrong here, is it ",and"?
2. In C how come S-V agrees? since script is singular and derive is plural
3. what is wrong with D here?

I understood that subject is "northern and southern alphabets "

Don't we require past tense "derived" instead of "derive"

Am I missing something?

ok I agree in that. But the only option which has derived is A. but in it "was derived" is wrong for both northern and southern alphabets.
