herself an escaped slave VS an escaped slave herself
A vs C.

C.

*EDITED*
for guiding in C sound awkward.
may be A is lesser of two evils.

Fascinating, I chose A, and therefore that means the answer should be B,C,D or E. I'd double check the answer if I were you

I would go with A.

B - being is redundant.
C - for guiding is awkward...should use infinitive form..
D - as an is problematic...is did not act AS IF she were a slave...
E - redundant and awkward..."for the guiding of" ???
