    their composed vs they are composed

    Assize courts differ from other French courts because they are composed of apresiding judge and two judges additionally coming from either that court or one sitting with nine jurors - ordinary citizens whose names are drawn by lot from the
    electoral rolls.

    A. because they are composed of a presiding judge and two judges additionally
    B. because they are composed of a presiding judge and also two other judges
    C. because they are composed of a presiding judge and also of two other judges
    D. in that their composition is of a presiding judge and two other judges
    E. in that they are composed of a presiding judge and two other judges

    Answer is between D and E.

    I understood why in that is preferred to because because calls for a causal relationship.. in that is to say one way how they are differing.. is that correct?

    Now, between D and E.. Which is better? their composition is of or they are composed of?

    Thanks for your advanced help

    I don't think D is actually wrong, but E is much neater.
    "The cake is composed of flour, water, eggs and sugar." Normal.
    "The cake's composition is of flour, water, eggs and sugar." Ugly.
