D for me.

amed for his masterful use of irony, many of Guy de Maupassant's short stories have become classics due to the author slowly revealing at the end of each piece a tragic twist of fate.

A. Famed for his masterful use of irony, many of Guy de Maupassant's short stories have become classics due to the author slowly revealing at the end of each piece a tragic twist of fate. Incorrect modifier - OUT

B. Many of Guy de Maupassant's short stories have become classics because of how he famously and masterfully uses irony, evident in the slow revelation of a tragic twist of fate at the end of each piece. - no antecendent for "he" - OUT

C. Famed for using irony in a masterful way, many of Guy de Maupassant's short stories have become classics because of the author slowly revealing a tragic twist of fate at the end of each piece. - Avoid Preposition + noun + participle in GMAT - OUT

D. Many of Guy de Maupassant's short stories have become classics because of the author's famed and masterful use of irony, evidenced in the slow revelation of a tragic twist of fate at the end of each piece.
- CORRECT, best of all

E. Many of Guy de Maupassant's short stories have become classics because he slowly revealed a tragic twist of fate at the end of each piece, demonstrating his famed and masterful use of irony.

Famed for his masterful use of irony should modify Guy De Maupassant not his stories.
So A and C are out .
B has some very serious issue because of takes a noun or it should modify the action of the sentence that does not happen here
E here he can not refer to Guy de Maupassant because the starting word possissive.
The sentence is very awkward
D is the correct answer .
