Organisation is singular- so 'admits' is the correct verb. This rules out B,D
E distorts the meaning
C changes the meaning
Hence IMO , answer should be A

- Singular verb "ADMITS" should be used for noun "The Daughters of the American Revolution"
C) admits as members women who can prove lineal descent
- Placement of "ONLY" before WOMEN means that organization may hire Males as well, but criterion is applicable for women only
