Once portrayed as the engine of a future golden age of robot assistants and convenient automation, the rapid advancement of AI, or artificial intelligence, technologies has led to questions about the nature of work, the rights of machines, and revised definitions of life itself.

(A) Once portrayed as the engine of a future golden age of robot assistants and convenient automation, the rapid advancement of AI, or artificial intelligence, technologies has led to questions about the nature of work, the rights of machines, and

(B) While AI, or artificial intelligence, technologies were once portrayed as the engine of a future golden age of robot assistants and convenient automation, their rapid advancement has led to questions about the nature of work and the rights of machines and to

(C) Although it was once portrayed as the engine of a future golden age of robot assistants and convenient automation, the rapid advancement of AI, or artificial intelligence, technologies has led to questions about the nature of work, the rights of machines, and has

(D) With AI, or artificial intelligence, technologies once portrayed as the engine of a future golden age of robot assistants and convenient automation, their rapid advancement has led to questions about the nature of work and the rights of machines and has

(E) Once portrayed as the engine of a future golden age of robot assistants and convenient automation, the rapid advancement of AI, or artificial intelligence, technologies has led to questions about the nature of work and the rights of machines, and to

Identifying the modifier and the modified entity would pretty much solve the question here.

"Once portrayed as xyz" is the modifier, whereas, in Option A, this modifier is modifying "the advancement of AI technologies". But the advancement was never portrayed as xyz, right - the AI technologies were. This error eliminates options A, C, and E.

Between B and D, the contrast is only reflected in B. So imo, B is the right answer.

(A) Once portrayed as the engine of a future golden age of robot assistants and convenient automation, the rapid advancement of AI, or artificial intelligence, technologies has led to questions about the nature of work, the rights of machines, and -> Misplaced modifier.

Rapid advancement wasn’t portrayed as the engine of the future but it was AI technologies.

Modifier should be AI, not rapid advancement of AI, so E is wrong.

B is the only one that has a proper sentence structure with correct modifier placement.

option E is the right answer in my view. It rightly places 'to' before revised definitions and makes the statement logically as well as grammatically correct.
