A classic problem with C is that the phrase 'for several years' is not modifying the noun Tahiti but modifying the verb 'lived' hence, where life was slow cannot refer to Tahiti.

A and B are modifier errors.

E is meaning error.

Paul was living in Tahiti first before he started facing difficulty. So the used of had for second action is what got me confused here
