Straight A.

It may be another fifteen years before spacecraft from Earth again venture to Mars, a planet now known to be cold, dry, and probably lifeless.
We need Mars just before the comma to make sense.
Also, use of 'being' is avoided as far as possible.

I applied the logic too but i was confused beacuse the noun here is "spacecraft" which is singular and the verb need to be "ventures" for s-v agreement

your logic about the modifiers is very correct

anothee reason A is correct is that we need to use the "to be" instead of"for being" etc

hey buzzgaurav,

do you have any references why one should avoid "being"? I hear people mentioning it, but no reasons...
