Modifying phrase should correctly modify the author, which is not the case with A,C & D.

E changes the meaning, leading to B - the final answer.

But doesn't "J.K. Rowling is estimated to be worth over $1 Billion" sound odd? I mean how can J.K. Rowling worth $1 Billion??

The final fight is between B & E becasue rest of them have modifier issue.
B -> correct idiom - estimated to be...
E -> has had - incorrectly used.

Cheers!

With much success from writing the 10 Harry Potter books - This is talking about author of the Book, so the JK Rowling need to follow.

Correct Answer by POE is B though it looks weird. Not a GMAT type question.

There is only one action verb. So why we need a perfect tense.

B is definitely the answer, but slightly off topic, I am pretty sure Harry Potter consisted of 7 books, not 10 :D
