(A) battlefields, at Dicores, so close was one of them to the actual fighting
-- wrong. Run-on sentence. "at Dicores" create ambiguity to which sentence it modifies.

(B) battlefields, one of them was at Dicores as close to the actual fighting
-- "as close" is wrong.We need "so close" to convey the proper meaning. Again,run-on sentence.

(C) battlefields, being so close to the actual fighting at Dicores, so
-- "being so close.." incorrectly modifies the preceding sentence.Volunteers of Red Cross aren't so close to the battlefield that a bullet brushed past their ear!! Only one of them is.

(D) battlefields; at Dicores, one of them was so close to the actual fighting
-- That's it!!

(E) battlefields; one of them at Dicores as close to the actual fighting
-- "as close" is wrong.We need "so close" to convey the proper meaning. "one of them at Diocores..." is a fragment.



Thanks for the question
If anything is wrong,please correct me :-D

(D) battlefields; at Dicores, one of them was so close to the actual fighting
(E) battlefields; one of them at Dicores as close to the actual fighting

A:at Dicores is creating ambiguity about the meaning of the sentence.
B:as close is wrong

It is looking for (so...that) clause.
Clearly D.

(A) battlefields, at Dicores, so close was one of them to the actual fighting
(B) battlefields, one of them was at Dicores as close to the actual fighting
(C) battlefields, being so close to the actual fighting at Dicores, so
(D) battlefields; at Dicores, one of them was so close to the actual fighting
(E) battlefields; one of them at Dicores as close to the actual fighting
