First thing I see is an "and" so this is a question of parellelism.
Also, there is a modifiers in the question.

A) Being born in India in 1861 and returned to his homeland in 1882, Grant Asher, the famous Scottish rugby player
Being born and returned are not parallel.

B) Returning to his homeland in 1882, Grant Asher was born in India in 1861; the famous Scottish rugby player then
was he born while returning homeland - totally dosent makes sense. Meaning error.

C) Born in India in 1861, Grant Asher, the famous Scottish rugby player, returned to his homeland in 1882, -looks good
D) Born in India in 1861, Grant Asher, the famous Scottish rugby player, returned to his homeland in 1882 and-looks good
E) Born in India in 1861 and returning to his homeland in 1882, Grant Asher, the famous Scottish rugby player,
-born and returning are not parallel easy elimination

Between C and D
Try to insert in the complete sentence if it makes sense.

Its a list of verbs for the noun Grant Asher
-returned---X
-attended---Y
-went---Z
It sholuld be X, Y and Z

C) Born in India in 1861, Grant Asher, the famous Scottish rugby player, returned to his homeland in 1882, attended Oxford University, and went on to lead the university team in 1884.

D) Born in India in 1861, Grant Asher, the famous Scottish rugby player, returned to his homeland in 1882 and attended Oxford University, and went on to lead the university team in 1884.
-This can be eliminated based on X and Y and Z
