D is best. 45 sec
A) scholar's [their] categorizing of Tacitus's. "of" would have been needed as idiom is "the categorizing(noun) of X"

I go with A.

Modern critics are amused not by scholars, but by their categorization of
Tacitus’s Germania as an ethnographic treatise.

C,D,E seem to imply that Modern critics are amused by the scholars

Between A and B, the phrase "as if an" should be "as if it were" in B

Hence A

(B) use of "if" is grmatically not correct.
