B......

was the largest city in the world ......should be accompanied in the 7th century...because it was largest city in 7th century and not now.....
HERE IS HOW I UNDERSTOOD.......

B. was, with more than one million inhabitants, the largest city in the world in the seventh century -- CORRECT

C. in the seventh century, had more than one million inhabitants which was the largest city in the world -- WHICH IS MODIFYING INHABITANTS

D. having more than more million inhabitants and being the largest city in the world in the seventh century ---- TENSE PROBLEM.....SHOULD BE IN PAST TENSE..any expert on tense..pls comment....

E. with more than one million inhabitants in the seventh century, the largest city in the world--the largest city in the world IS DANGLING...DOES NOT REFER TO CITY HERE[/i]

I choose B. In A, "with more than .....in the seventh century" seems to modify the world, not Changan.
