815. The record of the past is always incomplete, and the historian who writes about it inevitably reflects the preoccupations of their own time.
(A) the historian who writes about it inevitably reflects
(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
(E) historians in writing about it inevitably reflect

Hi,
The answer is E) -- but B) is long just because of subject that is historican instead of historicans?

B is wrong because it uses future tense. The sentence doesn't require future tense.

Also, the second part of the sentence uses "their own". So, the subject
has to be plural i.e. historians.

Only D and E have "historians" of which D is badly constructed.
