so-called vs. called so - the correct idiom is so-called, so eliminate C,D

A. the so-called suicide doctor, on November 5 was imprisoned in Wayne County Jail in Detroit for - on Nov.5 should modify imprisoned not the doctor
B. the so-called suicide doctor, was imprisoned on November 5 in Wayne County Jail in Detroit for - correct answer choice
C. the called so suicide doctor, on November 5 was imprisoned in Wayne County Jail in Detroit for
D. the called so suicide doctor, was imprisoned on November 5 in Wayne County Jail in Detroit for
E. the so-called suicide doctor, on November 5 in Detroit was imprisoned in Wayne County Jail for - on Nov.5 should modify imprisoned not the doctor. Also, in Detroit should also modify Jail not Nov. 5.

Dr. Kevorkian should be follow by a verb - the only choice that make this premise concise is B.

Dr. Kevorkian, the so-called suicide doctor, on November 5 was imprisoned in Wayne County Jail in Detroit for his alleged role in the suicides of two men, and he then began a hunger strike.

A. the so-called suicide doctor, on November 5 was imprisoned in Wayne County Jail in Detroit for - WRONG. Not straightforward incorrect but better option available.
B. the so-called suicide doctor, was imprisoned on November 5 in Wayne County Jail in Detroit for - CORRECT. Placement of 'on November 5' is correct.
C. the called so suicide doctor, on November 5 was imprisoned in Wayne County Jail in Detroit for - WRONG. 'Called so' is an expression error.
D. the called so suicide doctor, was imprisoned on November 5 in Wayne County Jail in Detroit for - WRONG. 'Called so' is an expression error.
E. the so-called suicide doctor, on November 5 in Detroit was imprisoned in Wayne County Jail for - WRONG. Similar to A the option repeats errors.

IMO Answer (B).

Selected B.
The first split was. “ so called....”
Between A,B & E, the placement of “on November 5” is correct on answer choice B.

The correct answer is B. The right form of the word is so-called not "called so". Hence D and C can be eliminated.

A has a modifier error by wrongly bringing " on November 5" which is intended to modify the verb "was imprisoned" before it. Similar error occurs in option E. Hence A and E can also be eliminated.

option c and d are unidiomatic. So-called is right.
For option a b and e. Both a and e wrongly place on November 5 between the Subject and the Verb.

Official Explantion

The best answer is B. B correctly removes on November 5 out from its incorrect place between the subject, Dr. Kevorkian, and the verb, was imprisoned.
