Regardless of their form or function, all aerodynamically enhanced, curved objects made for throwing have been called boomerangs by non-Australians even since 1788, when Europeans saw Dharug-peaking men tossing “bumariny” in the area later known as Sydney.

(A) Regardless of their form or function, all aerodynamically enhanced, curved objects made for throwing have been called boomerangs by non-Australians even since 1788,

(B) Regardless of their form or function, any aerodynamically enhanced, curved object made for throwing has been called a boomerang by non-Australians even since 1788, - Subject verb agreement issue as boomerang is singular and their is plural

(C) Ever since 1788, non-Australians have called all aerodynamically enhanced, curved objects made for throwing boomerangs, regardless of their form or function, from - word when refers to a time or date and in this case, a date. That date needs to be placed right before the "when."

(D) Ever since 1788, any aerodynamically enhanced, curved object made for throwing has been called a boomerang by non-Australians, regardless of its form or function, from - same as C ; the presence of both "from" and "since" constitutes redundancy

(E) Non-Australians have called all aerodynamically enhanced, curved objects made for throwing boomerang ever since 1788, regardless of their form or function, from - same as C

Answer A

Just looking at the choices, we can see that the use of since and from is rather redundant; since means 'from a time point". Therefore, we can remove C, D, and E in a lot.
Between A and B, the plural 'their' and the singular 'any' are incongruous. Therefore, walk away with A.
