(A) The unsupervised party seeming to be - ing modifier changes meaning
(B) As the unsupervised party was - use of as is wrong
(C) In that the unsupervised party seemed - In that the is wrong
(D) Since the unsupervised party was - since is wrongly used here
(E) Because the unsupervised party seemed to be - Correct

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:

The use of ‘seeming’ in A is incorrect. ‘Thought’ later in the sentence places the sentence in the past tense. ‘Seemed’ is necessary. Eliminate A. The use of ‘was’ in B and D changes the meaning. The use of ‘in that’ in C is not as good as the use of ‘because’ in E. ‘Because’ establishes the reason something happened. Choice E is correct answer.

since it uses "Seem" in the right form and brings flow to the sentence along with the use of "because"
