Allright guys if C is OA then can somebody explain

what "intended " is modifying "mutual funds" of "portfolios" ?

Also is it right to have Two modifying phrase back to back , just comma between them?

I think "Intended" modifies "mutual funds". From what I understand modifier always modifies the closest phrase.

Expert comments please!

I believe "often in the form of mutual funds" is an apositive;a noun or pronoun -- often with modifiers -- set beside another noun or pronoun to explain or identify it. .
