(A) Being a United States citizen since 1988 and born in Calcutta in 1940, author Bharati Mukherjee has
incorrect chronological order: born first and then became a citizen...
(B) Having been a United States citizen since 1988, she was born in Calcutta in 1940; author Bharati Mukherjee
"She" has no referrent and same order issue as A
(C) Born in Calcutta in 1940, author Bharati Mukherjee became a United States citizen in 1988; she has
Right order, semicolon separates two independant phrases
(D) Being born in Calcutta in 1940 and having been a United States citizen since 1988, author Bharati Mukherjee
"Being" use awkward here
(E) Having been born in Calcutta in 1940 and being a United States citizen since 1988, author Bharati Mukherjee.
"Being" use, a little verbose than C

C it is.

I eliminated the choices on the basis of having been and being are both more undesirable...does the chronological order matter in the sentence correction ...

she has lived in England and Canada

is this correct?

she lived in England and Canada
seems better

The present perfect is used with for and since, when the actions have not finished yet: I have lived in Victoria for five years.
(I still live in Victoria.)
The simple past is used with for and since, when the actions have already finished: I lived in Victoria for five years.
(I don't live in Victoria now.)
