Answer

Choice (E) is correct.  It avoids the subject-verb agreement error of the original by replacing the singular verb “was” with the plural verb “were” to agree with the plural subject “All.”  It also provides the present participle “including” to avoid any potential ambiguity associated with the relative pronoun “which.”
