In the following discussion, the OA was conluded to be E
A was refuted since it looks like an appositive, but is placed wrongly in the beginning.

A is not correct one. only Herself doesnot modify mrs. new-land. we need either herself being or being herself.

seems herself being is correct one.

So go with E.

A)..."being" should be avoided in most cases. E) would create a run-on-sentence. that consists of two independent sentences that are put together without proper punctuation. the first part acts like an appositive phrase. so A) is fine. but i think more important and much faster is to notice that "being" is no-no in gmat.
