A,B,D and E all have a problem with the phrasing and choice of words.

C is the best choice.

(A) Being a United States citizen since 1988 and born in Calcutta in 1940, author Bharati Mukherjee has ---> "being" is wrong here

(B) Having been a United States citizen since 1988, she was born in Calcutta in 1940; author Bharati Mukherjee ---> "she was born.. author B.Mukherjee.." is wrong

(C) Born in Calcutta in 1940, author Bharati Mukherjee became a United States citizen in 1988; she has ---> Correct

(D) Being born in Calcutta in 1940 and having been a United States citizen since 1988, author Bharati Mukherjee ---> "being" is wrong

(E) Having been born in Calcutta in 1940 and being a United States citizen since 1988, author Bharati Mukherjee ---> "having been born" is wrong as it is not consistent with 1940
