    Question Toefl Question

    Hello

    Here is my question:

    The first Native Americans to occupy <A> what is <B> now the southwestern United States were <C> the Big-Game Hunters, which <D> appeared about 10,000 B.C.


    which one is incorrect ? which one is the answer?

    the book says the answer is "D", but I don't know why. Besides, I think "B" is the answer because occupy should followed by a location grammatically, so we should use "where is" instead of "What is".

    maybe I don't comprehend this sentence!

    plz explain

    the book says the answer is "D", but I don't know why. Because it should be 'who', not "which". People are 'who', not "which".
    Besides, I think "B" is the answer because occupy should followed by a location "the southwestern United States" is a location.
    grammatically, so we should use "where is" instead of "What is". no
