@Minerva,

Passage A tells us that the principle of rectification involves using historical information to bring the actual ownership of property in conformity with principles of justice. Passage B tells us that the Indian Nonintercourse Act was passed in order to protect Native Americans from any subsequent fraudulent land acquisitions, it was not meant to rectify any prior land transfers, hence the law is best characterized as designed to prevent any violations of the principle of justice in transfer (D) rather than rectifying any prior injustices as (E) suggests.

Let me know if you have any further questions.
