Hi there,

I'll give you my reasoning, please let me know if you spot gap.
Passage tells us
According to Whig propaganda,
women who turned out at the
party’s rallies gathered information
that enabled them to mold party-loyal
families, reminded men of moral values
that transcended party loyalty, and
conferred moral standing on the party


The highlighted portions are almost verbatim to the wording in E: women’s presence at rallies would enhance the moral standing of the party


B. women were the most important influences on political attitudes within a family
Most important influences? ummm not sure about that. Tad extreme.
important influence? yes, sure. but Most is wrong.

Hope it helps. Let me know of any doubts.

According to Whig propaganda, women who turned out at the party's rallies gathered information that enabled them to mold party-loyal families, reminded men of moral values that transcended party loyalty, and conferred moral standing on the party.

B. -- the word MOST important makes B incorrect
E . The sentence is about the impact of the women's presence at the rallies
