The National Museum of American History owns Harley-Davidsons of various vintages on account of having evolved into an American touchstone.

A. on account of having
B. on account of their having
C. because they have
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).
