A seems best. But, is'nt the modifier "seeking....." dangling without a noun in A?

I chose A because the others are hving much more flagrant errors

Answer should be "A". "seeking..." is not atall dangling. It clearly modifies "a large group of ..."
"seeking..." is a present participle phrase and can be put at starting or ending of the sentence.

Definetly A,

A large group is the subject of the sentence and should be placed at the begining.

Seeking modifies a large group and is very well placed after the comma....
