Who was turning away should come directly after the opening modifier -> A is out.
She and SL seems to refer to different people -> B is out.
in addition to is incorrect , it seems to imply somebody else is 1st Swedish writer -> C is out.
multiple problems with E , ex - that won is incorrect , it should be who. Also the modifier in becoming XYZ is awkward at best.

D wins.

Is there an explanation as to how a sentence can start with "A"?

A-- Modifier error, Turning Away from.....Must refer to Selma ( Individual )
B--She Turned away ( No clear antecedent for She) and Novelist- It appears there are two subjects in the sentence
C--In Addition to-- Wrong Usage
D--Correct--Proper Use of Modifier
E-- As a Novelist--Meaning is Distorted--It sound like while she was a Novelist, she turned away...NOT The Intended meaning

OA : C

But I somewhere read that the usage of "and also" is always redundant so eliminated D. Experts please suggest , is this a qualified assumption?
