Hi,
It may look very complicated as there are so many fragments and entire sentence is underlined ..
But if broken down for faults, we can get down to the CORRECT answer..

lets see the choices--


A> Akhenaten, formerly Amenhotep IV, an Egyptian pharaoh of the 18th Dynasty, who was married to Nefertiti, worshiped the Egyptian god Aten, renamed himself, wrote the Hymn to Aten, and, therefore, could be considered one of the first monotheists.
formerly amenhotep IV means amenhotep renamed himself Akhenaten, THIS DOES NOT COME OUT CLEARLY
Parallelism in worshiped, wrote renamed and could be considered....


B> Amenhotep IV, an Egyptian Pharaoh of the 18th Dynasty, who was married to Nefertiti, worshiped the Egyptian god Aten, enough to decide to rename himself Akhenaten, and wrote the Hymn to Aten; therefore, he is considered one of the first monotheists.
Corrects the ERRORS of A, but introduces a new error by writing -- enough to decide to rename himself Akhenaten--

C> Amenhotep IV, an Egyptian Pharaoh of the 18th Dynasty, who was married to Nefertiti, worshiped the Egyptian god Aten, renamed himself Akhenaten, and wrote the Hymn to Aten; therefore, he was considered one of the first monotheists.
Again Corrects almost everything BUT uses PAST 'was'... we are speaking of present day that is consideration is happening NOW

D> Amenhotep IV, an Egyptian Pharaoh of the 18th Dynasty, worshiped the Egyptian god Aten, renamed himself Akhenaten, and wrote the Hymn to the Aten; therefore, he is considered one of the first monotheists and was married to Nefertiti.

Therefore he was married to Nefertiti CHANGES the meaning

E> Amenhotep IV, an Egyptian pharaoh of the 18th Dynasty, who was married to Neferiti, worshipped the Egyptian god Aten, renamed himself Akhenaten, and wrote the Hymn to the Aten; therefore, he is considered one of the first monotheists.
CORRECT
Amenhotep IV,an Egyptian pharaoh of the 18th Dynasty, who was married to Neferiti, worshipped the Egyptian god Aten, renamed himself Akhenaten, and wrote the Hymn to the Aten; therefore, he is considered one of the first monotheists.

In all the options other than D , what is verbed modifier worshiped refering to?
I think it is refering to his wife Nefertiti.
