A all the way

A) Though the language of Beowulf is practically incomprehensible to contemporary readers, careful linguistic analysis reveals a multitude of similarities to modern English. – correct choice

B) Despite that it is practically incomprehensible to contemporary readers, careful linguistic analysis reveals that the language of Beowulf has a multitude of similarities to modern English.—Despite, being a preposition cannot be followed by a clause

C) Though being practically incomprehensible to contemporary readers, the language of Beowulf reveals through careful linguistic analysis a multitude of similarities to modern English. – Beowulf does not reveal; It is the analysis that reveals ---meaning gets changed

D) Though Beowulf has a language that is practically incomprehensible to contemporary readers, a multitude of similarities are revealed to modern English through careful linguistic analysis. – Who is revealing to whom in this case? Is Beowulf trying to reveal? Definitely it is the analysis that is revealing.

E) Despite having practically incomprehensible language to contemporary readers, Beowulf reveals through careful linguistic analysis a multitude of similarities to modern English. --- Beowulf reveals is wrong; meaning gets changed
