A. The Oneida为集合名词，谓语应为复数were。
B. The Oneida为集合名词，谓语应为复数were。
易洛魁联盟（英语：Iroquois Confederacy），又称易洛魁，是一群居住于今日美国纽约上州、宾州、俄亥俄州和加拿大魁北克的印第安人，在十六世纪末，由五大部族莫霍克人、奥奈达人、奥农达加人、瑟内萨人和卡尤加人在纽约地区北部组成联盟，塔斯卡洛拉族人于后来加入成为第六个部族。易洛魁联盟是美国东北部和加拿大东部最强大的原住民势力。奥奈达人（Oneida）操易洛魁语的北美印第安部落，位于今纽约州中部，是易洛魁联盟(Iroquois League)原有5民族之一。A：one of the five-nation Iroquois League（S），应该用复数，Oneida为集合名词，谓语应为复数were；B：Oneida为集合名词，谓语应为复数were；D：only ones 什么鬼？E：one of the five-nation Iroquois League（S），应该用复数，过去完成时错误。
A:who不能用来形容“League" B:they指代不清 D:"The Oneida"是一个群体性的名词（i.e. the football league)所以应该用单数动词 E:过去分词时态错误
下面的@格物致知说的最清楚，A最大的问题是语义错误，who修饰league就变成了这些league都sided with....了，正确的意义是应该只有O自己sided with...... 就是c选项的意思

D only ones搭配错误
A选项：①the+Oneida指的是一类人，后面应该用复数 ② five-nation Iroquois League，前面的five-nation是一个形容词，修饰后面，因而这里是一个单数名词，不能用one of修饰
the Oneida 是复数 相当于the english, the french, 所以谓语动词不能用单数 the five-nation Iroquois League五国联盟，本来就是单数，不能再说one of the league A was the only one of the five-nation Iroquois League who sided 谓语动词错误，the only one of the league错误 B was alone of the five-nation Iroquois League when they sided 谓语动词错误 alone of错误 C alone among the five nations of the Iroquois League sided D were the only ones out of the five nations of the Iroquois League in siding这个句子一看就是啰嗦 out of sth是跳出 意思错误 in siding也很奇怪 E only of the five-nation Iroquois League had sided 没必要用过去完成式，用过去完成式 代表过去已经完成，现在不存在了
in general, the modifier "in VERBing", whether it's an initial modifier or a modifier that comes after the clause, should point to an action that is done in the process of, or as a component of, the action of VERBing. for instance: lesley used the internet a great deal in researching the subject of her report. this meaning does not apply here, so the modifier is inappropriate. -- ** note that prepositional-phrase modifiers, if not set off by commas, can modify EITHER the preceding noun / noun phrase OR the entire action of the preceding clause (equivalent to "modifying the clause itself"). for instance: i read the book on the train --> this prepositional phrase modifies the ACTION "read the book", and/or the CLAUSE "i read the book" (not much distinction between these two interpretations; modifying an action and modifying a clause are basically the same thing). i read the book on the table --> this prepositional phrase modifies the NOUN "book". since both of these are generally possibilities, you need to use intuition / common sense to figure out which one applies in the problem at hand.
A who修饰谁不清楚，修饰Oneida 还是league不清楚 有歧义 C 语义简洁而且 清晰
the Oneida复数， "the oneida" is totally plural, like "the english" or "the french". 1. "five-nation" is actually an adjective. So, the five-nation Iroquois League is a singular noun phrase. We cannot say "one of/ alone of/ only of / the five-nation Iroquois League". i.e. these constructions seem like "one of apple/ alone of apple / only of apple". So, we can kill A, B and E. 2. in Choice B, "they" has no clear referent, because "was" already signifies "the Oneida" as a singular noun that is not consistent with "they", and because "Iroquois" actually acts as an adjective(Pronoun can only refer noun and noun phrase). 3. if someone "did X in doing Y", this means that X was something that happened during the process of Y. e.g., Two members of the team were injured in training for the upcoming game. choice D is incorrect because it's nonsense. "the Oneida were the only ones..." is not something that happened during the course of "siding with xxxx". 4. in Choice E, past perfect tense "had sided" has no ground, because there is no specific past-time sign on which past perfect tense should be based.
D选项是错在和后面的siding的动作表示同时发生吗？还是the only ones out of不对呢？

who' would be appropriate, because, as stacey has noted, 'the oneida' is analogous to 'the americans'. they're a group of people. this gets complicated with native american tribes. for example, * 'the iroquois nation' is an 'it', not a 'who', but * 'the iroquois' is a plural 'who', for exactly the same reason cited by stacey above.
English, French 都是复数。
"The Oneida' is plural, in much the same way as 'the English' or 'the French' would be plural (the French eat foods that are rather bizarre by the standards of most other countries). that observation knocks off choices a and b. choice d is wrong because it is extremely, incredibly wordy. 'out of' is also a problem (because the gmat would only use 'out of' if it meant literally out of something, or in standard idioms like '3 out of 4'), but the wordiness of this choice should smack you in the face the second you look at it. choice e is wrong because it uses the past perfect to refer to a single event. you need the simple past here (just 'sided', not 'had sided'), because there is no more recent time signal to justify the use of the past perfect for the 'earlier' event. that leaves choice c, which uses the simple past correctly and is concise. (notice that singular/plural isn't an issue with that choice, because past tenses, with the exception of was/were, don't conjugate for number). "
A one of 后面是一个五国联盟，五国联盟是一个单数，前面不能加one of B they不对，五国联盟是单数 C 正确 D were不对，O是一个国家，单数 E had done不对，没有暗示这是过去的过去
