With much success from writing the 10 Harry Potter books, J.K. Rowling's sales have made her worth over $1 Billion.

The first part of the sentence is refered to the author, so the author must follow in the next part.

A)J.K. Rowling's sales have made her worth over $1 Billion
Here the subject are the sales, not the author
B)J.K. Rowling is estimated to be worth over $1 Billion
CORRECT
C)J.K. Rowling's sales have made her worth more than $1 Billion
Here the subject are the sales, not the author
D)J.K. Rowling's net worth is estimated to be over $1 Billion
Here the subject is the net worth, not the author
E)J.K. Rowling has had income worth over $1 Billion
This is just awkward, and changes the meaning of the sentence. All the other answers talk about her worth now, this one says that she once had such an income.

With much success from writing the 10 Harry Potter books, J.K. Rowling's sales have made her worth over $1 Billion.

Who has got much success from writing 10 HP books? JK rowling or JK rowling sales?
It is J K Rowling boz the initial modifier , needs to be closest to the subject it modifies and that is JK Rolwing

This one is easy

Only B and E have the noun after the comma being J.K Rowling, and she is the one who has had the success.

E makes no sense, so B it is.

How can we estimate worth of a person ?
We can estimate worth of her assets.
Can we say
what is the worth of Mr.xyz ?
or
what is the worth of Mr.xyz's assets ?

From the POE,

B and E makes out and finally Option B since Option E is out of context.

Option B is correct grammatically.

My concern is How person is worth of money.

Is it correct question ?

Hi all,
this question seems to be awkwardly constructed from the very word go..
the underlined portion is straightway questionable in which a person is estimated to be worth something..
even the non underlined portion does not make sense in its construction
"With much success from writing the 10 Harry Potter books"
achieving much success from writing of the 10 Harry Potter books.. is the best it can come to and it will still be wrongly worded..
Regards
