Inaugurated five centuries after the world’s first telescope was invented in 2009, the world’s largest telescope VISTA uses a three-ton camera containing sixteen special infra-red sensitive detectors.

Meaning -The world’s largest telescope VISTA was inaugurated in 2009. This event occurred five centuries after the world’s first telescope was invented. The Vista uses a three-ton camera containing sixteen special infra-red sensitive detectors

A) Inaugurated five centuries after the world’s first telescope was invented in 2009, the world’s largest telescope VISTA uses a three-ton camera containing sixteen special infra-red sensitive detectors. - Wrong meaning

B) In 2009, the world’s largest telescope, VISTA was inaugurated five centuries after the world’s first telescope was invented, using a three-ton camera containing sixteen special infra-red sensitive detectors. - Means the inauguration was done using a three ton camera...illogical, hence wrong.

C) The world’s largest telescope, VISTA, inaugurated in 2009, five centuries after the world’s first telescope was invented, uses a three-ton camera that contains sixteen special infra-red sensitive detectors. - Correct.

D) Inaugurating the world’s largest telescope in 2009, five centuries after the world’s first telescope was invented, VISTA uses a three-ton camera containing sixteen special infra-red sensitive detectors. - Wrong meaning, "Inaugurating" is incorrectly modifying "VISTA"

E) Using a three-ton camera containing sixteen special infra-red sensitive detectors in 2009, the world’s largest telescope VISTA was inaugurated five centuries after the world’s first telescope was invented. Wrong meaning

A) Inaugurated five centuries after the world’s first telescope was invented in 2009, the world’s largest telescope VISTA uses a three-ton camera containing sixteen special infra-red sensitive detectors. First's telescope was invented in 2009? Meh.

B) In 2009, the world’s largest telescope, VISTA was inaugurated five centuries after the world’s first telescope was invented, using a three-ton camera containing sixteen special infra-red sensitive detectors. Vista was not inaugrated using a three ton camera

C) The world’s largest telescope, VISTA, inaugurated in 2009, five centuries after the world’s first telescope was invented, uses a three-ton camera that contains sixteen special infra-red sensitive detectors. Correct

D) Inaugurating the world’s largest telescope in 2009, five centuries after the world’s first telescope was invented, VISTA uses a three-ton camera containing sixteen special infra-red sensitive detectors. Vista is not inaugrating!

E) Using a three-ton camera containing sixteen special infra-red sensitive detectors in 2009, the world’s largest telescope VISTA was inaugurated five centuries after the world’s first telescope was invented.

This boils down to C and E, while C has a bunch of modifiers one after another. the "in 2009" in E which should modify inaugurated is far from it and therefore answer is C

Inaugurated five centuries after the world’s first telescope was invented in 2009, the world’s largest telescope VISTA uses a three-ton camera containing sixteen special infra-red sensitive detectors.

A) Inaugurated five centuries after the world’s first telescope was invented in 2009, the world’s largest telescope VISTA uses a three-ton camera containing sixteen special infra-red sensitive detectors. --> "the world’s first telescope wasn't invented in 2009, VISTA inaugurated in 2009"

B) In 2009, the world’s largest telescope, VISTA was inaugurated five centuries after the world’s first telescope was invented, using a three-ton camera containing sixteen special infra-red sensitive detectors. --> "inaugurated, using a 3T camera" doesn't make sense

C) The world’s largest telescope, VISTA, inaugurated in 2009, five centuries after the world’s first telescope was invented, uses a three-ton camera that contains sixteen special infra-red sensitive detectors. --> correct

D) Inaugurating the world’s largest telescope in 2009, five centuries after the world’s first telescope was invented, VISTA uses a three-ton camera containing sixteen special infra-red sensitive detectors. --> VISTA can't inaugurate itself

E) Using a three-ton camera containing sixteen special infra-red sensitive detectors in 2009, the world’s largest telescope VISTA was inaugurated five centuries after the world’s first telescope was invented. --> VISTA can't use a 3T camera itself
