A, B and E are out bcoz the modifiers, appearing to be, seeming to be and being ..are incorrectly modifying youth Canorous and not George.
C and D .. D has an idiom error.. Seem/(ed) to be is coorect.

Hence C.

Thanks alot Hence :-D

And I actually have another SC question that's bothering me, how come the correct answer A. below, ....help the listener determine... (the verb determine doesn't have s at the end--determines? isn't the listener a singular noun)
thanks for your help again~

In human hearing, subtle differences in how the two ears hear a given sound help the listener determine the qualities of that sound.
A. in how the two ears hear a given sound help the listener determine
B. in the two ears hearing a given sound help the listener in determining
C. in how a sound is heard by the two ears helps the listener determine
D. between how the two ears hear a given sound helps the listener in determining
E. between how a sound is heard by the two ears help the listener in determining

+1 C

A, B and E are ambiguous. Who is the candidate? George or Youth Canorous?
D has a wrong idiom.

C it is...
A, B and E- are eliminated because the sentence appears to modify the youth canorous when in reality its not...
D- is incorrect because usage of "seemed the correct..."

The main issue is Modifier .
we need verb modifier to modify why George was endorsed ?
A,B ,and E is present participle functioning as Noun modifier (all modifying youth Canorous )
Then we left with C and D
D- seem to/That or an if .....only construction. idiomatic problem
C is winner

E is wrong, because after "being ...", the next sentence must begin with the word "George". C is good ,because it is clear and precise
