I too will go with A on this one. I couldn't really find anything wrong with A. Besides, all other choices seem to somehow mangle the meaning of the original sentence. Without doubt, A is the best.

In choice B - "public's fancy was caught" is definitely wrong
In choice C - what does "it" refer to?
In choice D - The fancy of fredrick remington was caught?? This is so wrong
In choice E - the public's fancy can surely not be caught like an object by Fredrick Remington.

Except A, rest all choices are definetly weeds.

B, made the verb catch into participle.
C, "did it", did what???
D - weird constuction... Can not even consider this a valid choice.
E - again, no meaning at all.

A is a good construction and is meaningfull.
