(B) it was only the second that an American woman published - same as in A
(C) the second one only published by an American woman - "only" placed after "second one" changes the meaning.
(D) the second one only that an American woman published - issue of parallelism
(E) only the second published by an American woman
- right answer.

E for me also. In A and B: "it" is unclear. In C and D "only" after "the second one" change the meaning.
