(B) In contrast to the tense private drama, a thrilling conclusion of Act III is brought by King Henry's public defiance of the Roman Catholic Church, as he defies the papal legate, divorces Catherine, takes Anne as his wife, and proclaims himself head of the Church of England. - passive voice. incorrect.

(C) In contrast to the tense private drama, King Henry publicly defies the Roman Catholic Church by defying the papal legate, divorcing Catherine, taking Anne as his wife, and proclaiming himself head of the Church of England, bringing Act III to a thrilling conclusion. - modifier issue, TENSE issue. incorrect.

(D) In contrast to the tense private drama, King Henry's defiance of the papal legate, divorce from Catherine, marriage to Anne, and self-proclamation as head of the Church of England, all a public defiance of the Roman Catholic Church which brings Act III to a thrilling conclusion. - same as C. incorrect.

(E)In contrast to the tense private drama, King Henry's public defiance of the Roman Catholic Church brings Act III to a thrilling conclusion, as he defies the papal legate, divorces Catherine, takes Anne as his wife, and proclaims himself head of the Church of England. - active voice, no modifier issue. correct.

If I remember correctly, passive voice is not a reason for ruling out an option.
Is there anything else wrong with it?
It seems fine to me....?


There should not be a change of voice in a sentence. Here in (A), there is a change from passive voice to the active voice towards the end. I think this is sufficient enough for discarding this option.

Actually I don't quite get why is answer A wrong? I also thought that active voice was preferred here

Cheers
