As many as 300 of the 720 paintings attributed to Rembrandt may actually be the works of his students or other admirers.

(A) the 720 paintings attributed to Rembrandt may >> Correct Idiom "attributed to"
(B) the 720 paintings attributed to be Rembrandt’s might >> Wrong Idiom "attributed to be"
(C) the 720 paintings that were attributed to be by Rembrandt may >> "attributed to be by" -- wrong form
(D) the 720 Rembrandt paintings that were once attributed to him might >> "Rembrandt paintings" is wrong
(E) Rembrandt’s paintings, although 720 were once attributed to him, may >> Wrong structure.

The correct idiom here is 'attributed to'. Therefore, we can eliminate (B), (C).

(D) shifts the tense, since we don't know for sure whether the paintings are his. (E) is wordy.

That leaves us with (A), which uses the correct idiom, 'attributed to.'

Also in E, him is referring to Rembrandt, which is used as a possessive. The subject is still the paintings. So him is wrong.

A looks right.

However if the question was paraphrased, could this be correct?

As many as 300 of the 720 paintings attributed to Rembrandt were actually the works of his students or other admirers.

A. Correct answer.
B. There is no need for a possessive noun.
C. “Attributed to be by” – idiomatically incorrect.
D. The 720 paintings are still being attributed to Rembrandt.
E. Meaning error.

(A) the 720 paintings attributed to Rembrandt may Correct

(B) the 720 paintings attributed to be Rembrandt’s might [to be Rembrandt’s is awakward]

(C) the 720 paintings that were attributed to be by Rembrandt may [Wordy]

(D) the 720 Rembrandt paintings that were once attributed to him might [Wordy and awakword]

(E) Rembrandt’s paintings, although 720 were once attributed to him, may
[Wordy and awakword]


Option A is Correct.

All other options clearly have sentence construction problem. The sentence is telling about the paintings, which may not Rembrandt's work.
