@gjg

The question you posted is a wrong version.
The sentence below is the correct version. GIve it a try and you'll find it much easier. (Dont worry! the sentence you posted is grammatically incorrect).

In C, who clearly refers to Hands Holbein. Others, it is ambiguous!

Here is a request, while you are posting questions. Please do not reveal the OA. If you want something explained, you can always ask - Justify the answer. Otherwise, those who are trying the question for the first time might be mislead.

And for sentence correction questions please underline as it takes longer time to solve the question.

Thanks!!

OAs with "who" in the end will suit the pronoun antecedent Hands Holbein.
(b),(d) out

have been recognizing is incorrect,the sentence is not in a flow where Hands Holbein was recognized long ago and continuously was recognized by scholars.
(a) out

now (c) vs (e)
"being" usage is improper in (e), also, "and who"is incorrect , (and who -can be used when two different qualities of the subject is enlisted but when "as a "is already introduces in the sentence then only "who"will follow later in the line.

eg:-Jon is the guy who is known for his maths skills and who is the least recognized guy in sports.
Maria is known as a computer guru of the college who teaches software.

Hope this was helpful !
