Clearly its E.

Although he patented over 1,000 inventions....should modify a person i.e thomas edison.(Eliminate B,C,D)

Between A & E "fame based upon" is wordy and awkward whereas "fame for" is apt and precise.

B is wrong as the subject immediately following the comma of the modifying phrase "Although he patented over 1,000 inventions,..." does not make logical sense. Who patented over 1,000 inventions? Edison! B seems to think that "it was his invention" that patented 1,000 inventions. Inventions cannot patent something, but Edison, the person, can!
