A. For all its historical inaccuracies and incorrect descriptions of European art, faith, and architecture

"its" correctly refers to "The Da Vinci Code". "For all it historical inaccuracies" correctly modifies by providing more information about why "The Da Vici Code" was criticized. CORRECT
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

B. With all its historical inaccuracies and incorrectly describing European art, faith, and architecture

"With" indicates that "The Da Vinci Code" should be the doer of the action in the clause that follows but the clause " was heavily criticized" indicates that some other agent is performing the action in "The Da Vinci Code". INCORRECT
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

C. Having inaccurate history and incorrect descriptions of European art, faith, and architecture

"having" indicates that "The Da Vinci Code" should be the doer of the action in the clause that follows. INCORRECT
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

D. As a result of inaccurate history and incorrect descriptions of European art, faith, and architecture

"The Da Vinci Code" is not a result of the incorrect history instead it contains incorrect history. Meaning error. INCORRECT
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

E. Despite inaccurate history and incorrect descriptions of European art, faith, and architecture

No need to use the contrast word. INCORRECT
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Hence option A

A. For all its historical inaccuracies and incorrect descriptions of European art, faith, and architecture
This is a modifier correctly modifying THE DA VINCI CODE...
For is correctly used meaning 'because of', and gives us the reason of the second and main clause
Correct

B. With all its historical inaccuracies and incorrectly describing European art, faith, and architecture
with is incorrect here as we want to give a reason for main clause and just not add description/additional details about the novel.
Two portions- historical inaccuracies and incorrectly describing European...- are not parallel

C. Having inaccurate history and incorrect descriptions of European art, faith, and architecture
FOR is correct. Inaccurate history seems to say the history of novel, so changes meaning

D. As a result of inaccurate history and incorrect descriptions of European art, faith, and architecture
wrong use of 'inaccurate history'

E. Despite inaccurate history and incorrect descriptions of European art, faith, and architecture
DESPITE creates a contrast, which is not required.
Inaccurate history is wrong

A

What is the difference b/w historical inaccuracies and inaccurate history in this case ?

It is just that i find them oddly similar.

When one says 'inaccurate history of novel', it can easily mean how the novel was initially written and changes thereafter.
Also here the stress is on history. It may as well encompass the entire history as inaccurate
But when one says " all its historical inaccuracies, the novel', now we are not talking of history of the novel but the historical data written in it.
And here we are stressing upon the inaccuracies. Here we mean that there are some inaccuracies in the historical data
