Easy 1.

Eliminate 2,4 and 5 for the usage of "being".
Eliminate 3 for modifier problem.

I agree.

But there might a typo in the question.

What is 'this species of'?

Some thing my ear doesn't agree.

It's a clear 1 even though I don't like "Found even" a lot.

very confusing. i chose B because i thought there was verb error in A. however, going through the discussions, i think A is right.

1.Found even in ancient Egyptian mummies, the parasitic Guinea worm became the focus of a global public health campaign in 1986; this species of parasite has
Correct.

2 Being the focus of a global public health campaign since 1986 and found even in ancient Egyptian mummies; the population of the parasitic Guinea worm has
Use of semicolomn indicates two independent claused should be used. The first clause is dependent rather than independent.

3 Having been the focus of a global public health campaign in 1986, it was found even in ancient Egyptian mummies; the frequency of the parasitic Guinea worm
"it" is a dangling modifier, here.
4 Being found even in ancient Egyptian mummies and having been the focus of a global public health campaign since 1986, the frequency of the parasitic Guinea worm
Modifier problem. "Being and having been" are not parralel.

5 Having been found even in ancient Egyptian mummies and being the focus of a global public health campaign since 1986, the parasitic Guinea worm species
. When u see a compound adjective composed of 3 different words, look for an alternative answer.
"Having been found" and being are not parellel.
"Have been found" and "having been" are

"Species of parasite" and 'has" have SV agreement error. Isnt it ? how can it be A then. E is wordy and passive. But still gramatically correct.. It makes a better choice .

What is the source of the question. Does not seem legible. A seems best in the worst but even A has some problems.
