C has many errors.

he forged a statue in 1496 that was treated with acid, making it look like an antique

"that" wrongly modifies the year.
"he" is an ambiguous pronoun.
"making it..." is misplaced.
C changes the meaning.
You name it.

D. Correct.
A). he doesn't have antecedent( Michelangelo's is possessive)
B).Which wrongly refers to forgery . "Sold" needs a parallel verb "forged"
C). Same as A.
E).Passive form.

Why not A is the answer? What is the need for repeating the Noun??

He is in subjective case whereas Michelangelo's is possessive case.
