Yes from me as Its a very standard type question Modifier with action in the beginning must be followed with a person. Sure for a first timer a higher rating but for one who knows the basics definitely sub 600

Any suggestion Why B can't be ?

I somehow find this "accurately with near zero chances of error" awkward

The issue with B is:
1) Who is the doer of the action? Nowhere its mentioned that "who" is using the techniques.

Whereas E uses an active speech, mentioning the "scientists" as the subject performing the actions.

IMO its a 620-ish question.

The problem is testing initial modifier. The doer of the action(Using modern radio-carbon techniques) is missing.
IMO, yes it is sub 600 level as the concept tested is very common and mechanical.
