'A' - looks good

'B' - after 'that' noun & verb are missing... also, after 'during' an adjective 'the past' would have been more appropriate

'C' - after exceed that which looks odd to me

'D' - same as 'C'

'E' - 'what it did' doesn't sound good..

E lacks the present perfect "has"

(A) stands tall and proud
