D for me

Symeon did two things 1) collected texts and 2) relayed them, he did these two things "(by)borrowing from Asia some aspects of mystical practice". (which is actually modifying both his actions)

Though B looks parallel it is wrong because if Symeon would have done 3 things, the sentence would have been
collected (comma) relayed , and borrowed.

D for me

borrowed vs borrowing = borrowing wins

D modifies this correctly.

Gramatically D looks fine but the construction of the modifying phrase "borrowing from Asia some aspects of mystical practice" looks awakward.

Though B looks parallel it is wrong because if Symeon would have done 3 things, the sentence would have been

So does it mean that since there is no ',' before relayed , instead there is 'and' - the logical coherence stops. Thereafter the "borrow" verb applies to both

I think OA is D.

But I am not satisfied with -ing modifier as it is not qualifying -ing tests.

S collected text and relayed them to his reader, borrowing from Asia some aspects of mystical practice.

1. Test how :
How S collected text or how relayed texts to readers ?

Ans : by borrowing from Asia some aspects of mystical practice. Aspects is metaphorical how it can help in collection of texts or help in relayed text to readers. Borrowing aspects does not sound like a mechanism or mean.

2. Consequence or result.
Clearly borrowing is not a consequence of collecting text or relaying texts.

Who can help on this ? surely give kudos to one who justify -ing in D.
