Merged topics. Pls search before posting questions.

OA is E. "That...." + rather than "that..." -> D and E is left.
D is illogical.

"She was a women" mean that earlier was women, but not now. In D, 'was' is used.. This is not right.
hence E.

Dear srishti201996,

I'm happy to respond.

My friend, this SC practice question is a complete embarrassment. I am not convinced that the author of the question is fluent in English, because the extremely poor construction seems characteristic of someone who thinks he understands English and really does not. My friend, please do not worry that you this doesn't seem clear to you--it's not your fault at all!

Does all this make sense?
Mike

As explained by Miker HERE, this is not a good questions to practice. So, locking the topic.

Experts can still reply if they have something to say about the question.
