Answer

Correct Option is As the European political conquest expanded, we begin to intuit the early stirrings of racialist theories of 19th century colonialism.

We can infer after reading all the sentences that sentences CAED form a coherent paragraph. The paragraph goes with the theme of history before 1498 and after 1770, that before 1498, India had impossible truths to the European mind and after British colonialism, it had become a site plunder, commerce and opportunities. Sentence (b) does not go in harmony with the theme of the paragraph as it is about expanding of European political conquest which does not connect with other sentences. Hence sentence (b) is the right choice.
