B, what r "they" and "it" referring to?
C, the subject is "Helping ~ composer" => too long, it should be replaced by "it"
D, change of meaning

A, I think there is a modifier problem. can i say "the publication is selling"?

hence, my choice is E, though not happy with the choice itself.

^ E ^

(A) "Selling several hundred thousand copies in six months, the publication.." ---> wrong modifier

(B) who are "they" & what "it" refers to ??

(C) "Helping ... which was an instant hit" ---> wrong modifier & what "it" refers to ??

(D) “ragtime composer, published.." ---> wrong modifier

C is close, but it uses the dreaded passive voice.

(E) is my pick as well.

Can somebody please explain why "selling" is correct in E.

B sounded correct but the word "they" is bit ambigous.
