Yes I agree to that.

In A "resembling" correctly refers to the "creature", noun that immediately precedes it, because gerunds modify the nouns immediately preceding them if there is no comma before gerunds.

Here, the highlighted portion should be ignored because it is the prepositional phrase and the main subject can't lie within prepositional phrase.
