E-Incorrect modifier
D-The section after the ; is not independent.
C-Use of past participle is incorrect.
The use of modifier is better in B than in A.

I will take B.

Between A and B, I would take B as this type of modifier use is more prevalent

I don't think it is B

How can Lincoln "knew" at the same time "discovering"

First peddler knew
then Lincoln discovered

D uses the correct tense time line.

usage of ; is correct as it introduces another idea related to the first

Well, the only difference in choice D (maybe it's asaf's mistake?) is that in Arco it is actually the colon in the end
