"they" is ambiguous in (a) and (b), no subject to refer to since it can't refer to the ancient Anasazi

In choice (d) "and" is misplaced and doesn't serve any purpose

In choice (e) "which it is ..." is awkward construction

So that leaves (c)

A. what they now commonly call
'they' is the wrong tense when referring to a plant
B. a plant that they now commonly call
'they' who commonly calls these plants wild spinach?
C. now commonly called
Sounds good to me!
D. and is now commonly called
Improper usage of 'and'
E. which it is now commonly called

'it is now' sounds horrible

2/3 split with call/called. it is past tense so C-E pass that test. D and is not neccessary. E it is excessive and C is correct- it i clear and concise
