Here is OE:

(Appropriate Conjunction) The appropriate conjunction for referring to a time period (“1800s" is “when” and not “in which.” The given sentence thus has the error of using a wrong conjunction. So, (A) is not the answer. (C) and (E) can also be eliminated for the same reason. The phrase “earliest beginnings” in (B) has a redundancy (“beginning” means the “earliest” happening.) So, (B) can also be eliminated.
(D) does not have any error, is unambiguous, and is the answer.


If you find this question interesting, you can give KUDOS. Thanks
