Because there are provisions of the new maritime code that provide that even tiny islets can be the basis for claims to he fisheries and oil fields of large sea areas, they have already stimulated international disputes over uninhabited islands

(A) Because there are provisions of the new maritime code that provide that even tiny islets can be the basis for claims to he fisheries and oil fields of large sea areas, they have already stimulated
(B) Because the new maritime code provides that even tiny islets can be the the basis for claims to the fisheries and oil fields of large sea areas, it has already stimulated
(C) Even tiny islets can be the basis for claims to the fisheries and oil fields of large sea areas under provisions of the new maritime code, already stimulating
(D) Because even tiny islets can be the basis for claims to the fisheries and oil fields of large sea areas under provisions of the new maritime code, this has already stimulated
(E) Because even tin islets can be the basis for claims to the fisheries and oil fields of large sea areas under provisions of the new maritime code, which is already stimulating

The explanation for refuting the choice (C) and (D) given in the book don't seem very convincing. Can anybody please tell me why these are not a correct answer.

personal pronoun it should be used to refer maritime code. Instead of this.
C sounds fragment to me.

I will try to explain

Structure is -- Because of this, this happened
C does not follow this structure--it goes on and on
D has a very imp point to learn from
this cannot stand alone---it has to be this finding, this logic, this bla bla bla---this has stimulated is wrong

Here is how I came to B
A) 'they' is ambigious does they refer to the islets or the provisions
B)
C) empower said that whenever there is a mid sentence verb[ing] it is almost always wrong (why i ruled it out)
D) 'this' ambigious
E) which modifier is wrong
