I will go with C as well.

My reasoning, A/B/D "it" reference is confusing.

E, Too wordy to be even worthy.

C is least worst I guess.

Error in A:

Meaning is a problem here: In the centuries since painting it, scholars... implies Scholars have debated 'indefinitely' in the centuries...about the meaning of enigmatic smile worn by the Mona lisa... According to the sentence Scholars have debated since PAINTING 'it'-it has no reference and indirectly implies Scholars have painted something..!

POE:
A-OUT
B-Ever since painting it centuries ago acts as a modifier implies incorrectly that scholars painted something. and again 'ít' is a Problem-OUT
C-Ever Since the painting was created- 'The painting' correctly refers to a particular painting under discussion, no error as yet- remember even though 'in the centuries'or any time frame is eliminated, the sentence still conveys a time period using ever since and past tense-was-CORRECT
D-Since Leonardo da Vinci painted it- New information 'Leonardo da Vinci' is OK but 'it' is a problem
E-After the centuries in which Leonardo da Vinci created the painting- Unnecessary time sequencing utilised using After the centuries, in which-wordy!, Leonardo da Vinci created the painting is correct- Awkward and Wordy overall-OUT

so C is the answer IMO

BTW what's the source? does nt seem official!

Thanks
