Besides offering such physiological rewards as toned muscles, karate, if practiced regularly, can turn the body into a dangerous weapon and produce numerous other benefits.

The highlighted part acts as a modifier which modifies the Noun Karate, further separate the non-essential modifiers , nothing wrong with the original sentence, correct answer must be (A)

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



This question has to do with dangling modifiers. There is no subject in the first phrase, the part before the first comma. Therefore the subject of the verb in that phrase must come directly after the comma. What is the verb in the phrase? Offering is the verb. Who or what does the offering? Karate offers. Therefore karate is the subject and must come directly after the first comma. The only choice which offers this is A.
