in A] isn't this a rule that if ' comma ing ' is preceded by a noun and not a clause then still it is fine and it modifies the clause

in B] how should I imagine this 'would' construction

Hello himanshu0123,

We hope this finds you well.

To answer your query, here "would" is a helping verb that forms a part of the simple future tense construction "would...become".

Further, in Option A, the phrase "later becoming the famous novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin" can refer to the noun "magazine series", but it can also refer to the following clause; Option C resolves this ambiguity through its use of the "comma + which" construction.

We hope this helps.
All the best!
