Option B,there is no verb for Maya. B gone same as B, D gone. E - here which after the comma which refers to excavations. Now upon reading excavations may never be completly authenticated - this is incorrect since we are talking about the evidence which needs to be authenticated not the excavations. E gone A - although is followed by they. they should be referring to archeological excavations which is incorrect. we use pronoun they only for people or living things. A gone. C is correct choice.
