The subject is "lack of historical records" and not "historical records", and hence is singular. So you can eliminate A B and C. Also, the inventions are not "Black"- they were invented by Black originators and hence E is wrong. D is the right answer.

Henceforth, post the name of the question in the post title and TAG the source.

Thread locked.
