A. laws; a debtor, for example, could have his ear cut off or even be -- correct choice
B. laws including a debtor having his ear cut off or being --- says that the laws include a debtor with cut ears and so on.
C. laws in which a debtor could have his ear cut off or even be ---implies that the laws include a debtor
D. laws; a debtor, for example, could have his ear cut off or even being --- a fragment
E. laws so that a debtor could have his ear cut off or even be-- so that implies cause and effect as if the laws were made not to warn but to cut off the ears or to put people to death.

A is correct semicolon is followed by an independent clause .
B being is wrong , the sentence is suggesting ear cutting is in addition to the laws passed rather than it is a provision in the law.
C wrong "in which " is wrong
D use being is wrong
E changes meaning .

Apart from use of being, b changes meaning, b says that laws include a debtor having his ear cut off

Can someone explain why C is wrong? Where is it appropriate to use 'in which'?
