C

A, D, E are out because there is not a subject verb agreement. Between B and C, C sounds better.

Agree with C.

"The exigencies... make the foreshortening of dramatized historical events inevitable."

Plural subject (exigencies) - plural verb (make).

I chose E and I know it's wrong so here is my analysis

The exigencies makes (plural subject)
A, D out

"as shown even by the history plays of Shakespeare" means present tense sentance
So D is out

Left C and E I thought E is the anser but E reads

The exigencies ...foreshortens (subject verb)

So E is out and winner is 'C'

Took 3 mininutes to boil it down to (C) because exigencies (urgent needs or demands) are plural.
