This is a real tough one. If I correct one thing, I have to compromise on the other. I finally think that I'll choose 'C'.

The solution is to flip the last section. 'Both northern & southern India alphabets were derived from Aramic script. The use of was invalidates A.

Next call is: "Both northern & southern India alphabets derive from Aramic script". This helped me to zero in on C.

Use of deriving is awkward & inconsistent.

Please post the OA. This is very exciting!!!!

It is not a hard question. Firstly, we need "script" before the comma because the alphabets derive from the script, not from the Achemenid empire. Only C,D and E remain. E is wrong becuase change the meaning of the sentence, and in D we need plural, derive, not a singular, suc as derives.
