a tiny etched landscape – SINGULAR – Therefore, use either each or every. So either A,D,E.
Each and every require its. So, only A.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



This is a very straightforward question of singular or plural and of usage of the words ‘each’ and ‘every’. When you use the word each, you always use the singular, even if you are referring to multiple elements. You would say, for example: each boy in the class is wearing a sweater. Despite the fact that you are referring to multiple boys, you still use the singular. Therefore choices D and E are incorrect. Choice B could be correct if it were: ‘all the paintings tiny etched landscapes’. Choice C uses ‘all’ with the singular ‘its’. This is also wrong. Choice A is the correct answer.
