Between A and E, E states that it was the colonial pastime- implying the only pastime. A also correctly matches the idiom in the hands of with the appropriate artform.

A.

B improperly uses the possessive (women's).

C implies the the pastime was popular and AFTERWARD was used by Lloyd.

D uses improper verb tense (is).

E is wrong because it implies that the cut-paper design became an art form ONLY for Lloyd.

The modifier in E is okay as it is. Saying that it was the popular colonial pastime just indicates that it was popular. For example,

Football, the popular American pastime,...

That just tells us more info about Football. It doesn't necessarily mean that it is the most popular pastime in America. Just that it is popular.

In 1:30 got A.

B:, "and" doesn't make sense here just take away the phrase in the commas you will see that one.
C: to me this implies that it the popular pasttime is now literaly his
D: by implies that he created it, which would go against the earlier statment in the sentence, this doesn't make sense.
E: this was a tough one. But it seems to change the meaning of the original sentence. "design... became an art form for..." we don't know much more than this. the origninal meaning is lost b/c "in the hands of" is missing.

Just my 2 cents.
