The issue is one of idiom I suppose. Credit with is the right one compared to credit as or credit to be. WE are left with B a D and in B the modifier is dangling. D is correct

+1 D

"Credit with" is the idiom.
In E, "the author‘s enigmatic figure" doesn't match with the phrase at the begining of the sentence.

Great example of the use of the red flag word "being"---but in a correct answer choice.

Remember that "being" is NOT gramatically wrong. GMAT doesn't like "being" because sometimes is wordy.
In this sense, "being" could be correct if there is not a more concise option.

I agree. It is a good example to show 'being' is not always wrong.
