I would choose E,

because of subject verb object and no unnecessary passive voice.

1.That twenty-one ceramic dog figurines were discovered during the excavating
2.Twenty-one ceramic dog figurines discovered at the excavation
3.Discovering twenty-one ceramic dog figurines at the excavating
4.Ceramic dog figurines, twenty-one of which were discovered during excavating
5.The discovery of twenty-one ceramic dog figurines during the excavation


We need a singular noun so agree with the verb has.

out of all the choices only E has singular noun - the discovery
so E is the right choice.

Should be E.

Based on the construction of the sentence, we can eliminated ACD
B does not agree with the rest of the sentence.
