To the comma + verb-ing example.

In option E, "causing" is modifying the closest dependent clause subject "heavy rains" not the main subject "global warming". Am I correct in my understanding? Verb-ing + comma modifies closest clause subject

A participial phrase modifying the closest subject/doer is the most common case.

Crazy how I thought I knew most rules, seems there are more rules!

Curious to know which new rule did you learn from this sentence?

I thought that comma + verb-ing modifier only modifies subject of the main clause, it cannot modify subject of dependent clause
