(A) The unsupervised party seeming to be
(B) As the unsupervised party was
(C) In that the unsupervised party seemed
(D) Since the unsupervised party was
(E) Because the unsupervised party seemed to be



I will go with (E)

(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.

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