@Ankush557  Ah my bad. E followed by C is smoother. Sorry. @gopichand  Will edit.

It will be "have passed" Here years is plural. It is not being treated as a block of fifty years. But in a sentence such as "A fifty-year sentence was imposed on the prisoner" it would effectively become a singular situation, because here fifty-year is being used as an adjective for sentence and not as a noun.

@Pradeep.Mdas Not the source of the para, the source of the question I saw the source of the para already, and as I said over there it was NOT intended as a stand-alone paragraph. It has been lifted out of context...

3 for me @Pradeep.Mdas Stand alone para, "in effect" makes no sense at the start. Even in the given passage it is clearly a continuation of the previous thought. Source @Gaurav_in_race

@Pradeep.Mdas  E is a good start and A, going along a different track, cannot come anywhere in between and hence must be a good end. Choosing between options 2 and 3 is not that straightforward, but looking carefully E followed by D would mean mentioning "laws of life" in two consecutive sentences which would be awkward. So option 2 is rather better.  @harshcat91  thanks for the clarification
