The answer is E. The sentence said that is incorrect to think that the Greek scientific work is totally independent of the Egyptian and Babylonian culture. So the word has to be an antonym of "independence". Imitation is a possible answer but Egyptian and Babylonia culture could not imitate the Greeks because they were before, so the option is "influence on".
