(A) Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully coordinating them with her narratives,
Potter is not in her book illustrations. wrong modifier. bad sentence structure.

(B) In her book illustrations, carefully coordinating them with her narratives, Beatrix Potter
redundant pronouns referring back to the same noun.


(C) In her book illustrations, which she carefully coordinated with her narratives, Beatrix Potter

(D) Carefully coordinated with her narratives, Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations
Potter is not in her book illustrations. wrong modifier. bad sentence structure.

(E) Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully coordinated them with her narratives and
Potter is not in her book illustrations. wrong modifier. bad sentence structure.


I am not sure what the OA is. I dont have the answer key but my reasoning is outlined above.

Try to answer the question - Who "capitalized on her keen observation"???
Beatrix Potter

So Beatrix Potter modifies capitalized on her keen observation and should be next to it.
