A is right!

Error 1 : Having seen <something> modifies the subject Roberta, so, correct ans choice should have modifying phrase close to the subject - Roberta. A and B satisfy this.

Error 2 : should be vs should being. Should be is right. Subjunctive mood. So B and D are out.

Also avoid passive tense.

being is awkward here..

Having seen first-hand this recipe for disaster( verb+ing modifier) lacks the subject it intends to modify..incorrect

same as C
