D. Because of having
E. Because it has.

I signed up for 800 gmats. The answer they say is C. I think the answer should be E. The National Museum of American History(subject) is singular. Therefore it requires a singular pronoun. Does anybody understand why they picked the answer to be C?

You are looking for the subject of the verb 'evolved' here. The word 'Harley-Davidsons' is plural and is the subject of this verb (Museum did not evolve.. the bikes did).
