C it is... The first subordinate clause in C is a modifier, the second subordinate cluase is again a modifier but this time mobifying the former clause, there is nothing wrong with this.

A and E have pronoun reference problem. what does the pronoun "them" refers to?
B is incorrect for several reasons.. one of them is that in her book illustrations seems to modify carefully coordinating rather than Beatrix.
D changes the entrie meaning of original sentence.

C for me.
But for the option E, whats the reason of elimination ?

My analysis,

Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully coordinated them with her narratives and ....

We put generally the part of sentense which is not required and can be removed without
actually changing the real meaning of the question.

So if we remove the underlined part, THEM has a pronoun reference problem. Hence, the construct is not fine.
