A similar type of construction can be found in every Romance language, each having a consistent order of impersonal pronoun, indefinite pronoun, and verb.

"Each having" incorrectly modifies "A similar type of construction".

hence incorrect

It is supposed to modify those words only. Both A & C use adverb modifiers - A uses prep. ph and C uses present participle

after "comma" we need here something that modifies "every roman language" not "a similar type of construction".

Having is almost always incorrect on GMAT. Only case where HAVING is correct is HAVING + PAST PARTICIPLE
e.g.Having studied hard, I scored 700+ on GMAT

I wouldn't say incorrect. The SC part differs from RC and CR in this respect: there can be two or three correct answenrs, but one of them is the most correct. I personally love to use structures with having, but unfortunately this is not strongly recommended on the GMAT

Will this apply for all present participle verbs?

Can present participle + past participle construction be always correct?

A is correct.
1) The underlined part modifies "every Roman language", so "each" should be used;
2) a consistent order of X, Y and Y is a correct form.

C. each having a consistent order of impersonal pronoun, indefinite pronoun, and verb
D. all having a consistent order of impersonal pronoun, indefinite pronoun, and verb
E. all with consistent orders of impersonal pronoun, indefinite pronoun, and verb

Stuck between A and C;

I think both are grammatically correct but there is a subtle change of meaning .A conveys the meaning in a more clear and concise manner.

The modifier is working like a pronoun appositive ( if there is something like this!!!!)

In C, 'each having ' can refer either to similar type of construction or to every Romance language.

Only in A, each with clearly modifies Romance language.
