By POE
D and E are out straight away as the "As a participant...American panache," should modify Kenneth Bone.
A- Who is too far away from 'Kenneth' which it modifies.
C suggests that Kenneth Bone has become XYZ by sparking discussion on ABC, which surely is not the intended meaning.
IMO, after POE, the answer is B

Absolutely! C suggests that Kenneth Bone has become XYZ by sparking discussion on ABC..changes the meaning.
I also eliminated C on these lines..

IMO B is the answer because
B) Kenneth Bone, arguably the most popular public figure in the 2016 presidential election, has sparked discussion of a number of topics that include
As per OG, relative pronoun clause modifies immediate preceding noun. So that clause modifies topics.

C) Kenneth Bone has arguably become the most popular public figure in the 2016 presidential election, sparking discussion of a number of topics including

discussion of a number of topics including.... including can modify discussion or topics. So ambiguity.

Can I get clarification on how B is the better answer?? Original question states “Kenneth Bone has arguably become...” hence I chose C

Hi Syed, In C, it says that KB became the most popular public figure because he sparked discussion but this is not true.
Read B and C again, and you should be able to spot the difference.
