I say C , too. Because the first clause is a modifier. Why did the Youth Canorous endorse the candidate? because he seemed to be... blah blah blah. You can also narrow down your choices because "being" is almost always never a correct choice on GMAT.
whats the OA?

why?

at first glance E seems to be the correct answer but if you read the sentence carefully you will find, being is not correct as it is modifying the George and not the Youth Canorous.

Though I agree with you that E seems to be modifying George and NOT the Youth Caorous, isn't choice C wordy?

I agree with you.
D seems to mean the same as C, but less wordy. However, OA is C...

before a NOUN or a PARTICIPIAL construction, you must use "to be".
he appeared/seemed to be lying. --> correct
*he appeared/seemed lying. --> incorrect
he appeared/seemed to be a liar. --> correct
*he appeared/seemed a liar. --> incorrect

before an ADJECTIVE, you don't have to use "to be" (but you still can).
the report appears/seems credible. --> correct
the report appears/seems to be credible. --> also correct

Hope this Helps.

IMO, it is C

A, B, and c make the first clause (...the only candidate...) a modifier which modifies "the Youth Canorous". The moidfier should modifer George, not the Youth Canorous.

D is not a correct idiom..

A, B and E are out as the modifiers seem to be incorrectly modifying YC.

D is wrong as the correct idiom is 'seem to be'

C it is.

+1 C

Once I read that only you can use "being" in GMAT when you can replace it with the phrase "in the process of being". Otherwise, being is wrong.

I think I deserve kudos

Here the answer is C .

The reason is "Because" introduces a Subordinate clause and it follows the main clause.

As far as "to be" is concerned , it has to be used before a NOUN or PARTICIPIAL's.

Moderators , please correct me if i am wrong .
