The Federalist papers is a compilation of articles written by Alexander Hamilton and James Madison, as well as a few by John Jay, since each of them were advocates of the Constitution.

If you notice there is a pronoun reference error , "them" in below sentence can refer to any of the noun Alexander, James, John or articles. Here only men are the advocates of the Constitution . Hence the answer

(A) since each of them were ("each of them" can again include article)
(B) since they were each ("they can again include article)
(C) since all of them were ( "all" will include all the noun including article)
(D) each of which was (again ambiguity)
(E) because all of the men were (leaves no confusion in noun reference)

(A) since each of them were
(B) since they were each
(C) since all of them were
(D) each of which was
(E) because all of the men were

first, the predicate of the dependent clause is plural therefore A and D is out. "each of them were" does not have subject-verb agreement. C and E are wrong because "all" is ambiguous. it could mean one or more than one: the guys or the Federalist Papers or the articles. IMO B since the two guys are the only logical antecedents for "they"
