b. 2
c. 3
d. 4
e. 5

ANSWER: 2
 
Replace 'each and every' with 'each'.

'Each' is used for a single number of 'two or more persons' or 'things'.

'Every' is used for a single number of 'many persons' or 'things'.

The correct sentence should be: There were only two commandos but each commando was equal to six policemen.

Example:
EachEach girl must take part in the game.
There were five boys. Each was handsome.

EveryShe comes to me every day.
India wants peace in every corner of the world.
