shouldn't there be a "," between "troops" and "which" in B ... its creatin a doubt in my mind ... E looks better ..

If B is to be correct then the comma should stand in front "which"

yup which should refer to troops ... but "which" is normally preceded with a comma , which is not the case here..

Agreed that which is almost always preceeded by a comma. This is a rare case when it is not necessary.

troops...their...

so apparently the majority of you did not think was tough (B is right)! i was going in circles on this:

- i got the part that "their" should be for troops' military superiority not Attila's.
- but isn't WHO the correct one to refer to troops not WHICH? e.g.
The troops who marched to to Troy against
The troops which marched to Troy?

Is which right or who?
