a. and Arthur's coffin marked with the inscription --- Not //--a clause on side and a phrase on the other side of the conjunction 'and'

b. Arthur's coffin marked with the inscription --- Correct choice. The modifier is connected to the main clause with just a comma.

C. and the inscription were marked on Arthur's coffin-- Looks as if the monks marked the inscription on while exploring.

d. the inscription that was marked on the coffin of Arthur --not // with a clause on one side and a noun phrase on the other, the same as in A.

e. the coffin of Arthur had the inscription marked -- This is a comma-splice with two ics joined by a comma.

Can someone help me to better understand why A is wrong? More specifically, I am trying to figure out why B is right. I wanted to pick B, but I did not because I felt it needed to say, "Arthur's coffin WAS marked with the inscription." I didn't like A, but not for the same reasons listed as daagh ....I feel I must be missing something...can someone elaborate for me?

Daagh, pls some comments,

b. to what main sentence element your modifier is linked ?
e. why is it a problem to have 2 ics joined by comma?
