A for me.

IMHO, in B & C, the subject needs to come right after the modifying phrase, but doesn't.

D sounds wrong. I t makes it read that Beatrix was carefully coordinated.

Between A & E, A sounds better to me.

I think its E. Correct modifier and past verbs for parallelism
'coordinated' and 'capitalized'

(A) Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully coordinating them with her narratives, --->illustrations is a book name cannot refer as them.
(B) In her book illustrations, carefully coordinating them with her narratives, Beatrix Potter--->same error as A
(C) In her book illustrations, which she carefully coordinated with her narratives, Beatrix Potter ---->OK
(D) Carefully coordinated with her narratives, Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations--->Potter is not coordinated with her narratives.. the book is...
(E) Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully coordinated them with her narratives and---->Same error as A...

I believe, "...in her book illustrations...", illustrations refers to the pictures in the book used for clarifying or exemplifying and secondly, had it been the name, it would have started with a capital letter.
'them' refers to these illustrations which the author has carefully coordinated with her narratives, keen observation and love of the natural world.

A request : pls be extra careful when posting the OA. I kept scratching my head when I saw your first OA and thought how in this world can option E be a correct grammatical construction...until obviously you mentioned the correct answer.

Sometimes, seeing an answer which you are least expecting as the OA can affect your self-confidence!!!

I thought the answer to be D .

Can some one please tell me what is the difference between "with her narratives" and "by her narratives" .
Is the former usage wrong ?

For me it was a pronoun reference error, them did not refer to books or Beatrix clearly, this was solved in C.
