In my opinion, the best way to understand what modifies what is to Understand what the author is trying to convey. Try to understand the meaning of the sentence.

Let us note that structurally "embedded in the back cover" cannot modify "containing blah" since following an adjectival past participle modifier such as "embedded …," you will need to place a noun immediately after the comma. Per se, The sentence structure is wrong in B. By comparison, "the embedded …," phrase in E modifies a computer chip unquestionably.

Embedded in the back cover, biometric data, electronic fingerprints, pictures of the holder, and a wireless RFID transmitter contained in a computer chip have been inserted in every new U.S. passport since 2007.

This question checks the

Clarity, Usage of modifiers, and SVA


Meaning:

A computer chip is embedded in the back cover
The back cover contains biometric data, electronic fingerprints, pictures of the holder, and a wireless RFID transmitter
Every new passport has a computer chip since 2007

POE

A. Embedded in the back cover, biometric data, electronic fingerprints, pictures of the holder, and a wireless RFID transmitter contained in a computer chip have
Subject verb disagreement and Meaning ambiguity
B. A computer chip, embedded in the back cover, containing biometric data, electronic fingerprints, pictures of the holder, and a wireless RFID transmitter has
Here embedded and containing are used as modifiers but it is not connected with any conjuction, So it makes embedded an action verb which causes meaning ambiguity
C. A computer chip embedded in the back cover and containing picture of the holder, biometric data and electronic fingerprints, and a wireless RFID transmitter have
Subject-verb disagreement
D. Embedded in the back cover, a computer chip containing biometric data, electronic fingerprints, pictures of the holder, and a wireless RFID transmitter have
Subject-verb disagreement
E. Embedded in the back cover, a computer chip containing biometric data, electronic fingerprints, pictures of the holder, and a wireless RFID transmitter has Correct

I'm sorry if this question sounds stupid but In option B Can't we say that if containing biometric data is modifying embedded in back cover then we can ask ourself what is embedded in back cover and the answer is computer chip so in-directly its correctly modifying it. Is it like nouns can be modified only directly?
