(B) the historian writing about it will inevitably reflect
(C) a historian writing about it inevitably reflects
(D) writing about it, it is inevitable for historians to reflect

My Answer is D
Official Answer is E

A) incorrect because singular 'the historian' does not agree with plural 'their'

C) incorrect for the same
E) incorrect because 'inevitable' should function as an adverb to 'reflect'
Thats left us with only choice D.

I agree. The choice E (OA) should have "inevitably", not "inevitable"
(E) historians in writing about it inevitably reflect

Choice(D) is changes the intended meaning and also grammatically incorrect.
"inevitable for historians to reflect" is nonsensical in this context.
