IMO the answer should be C. "children" should be modified by "interacting with their environment". So C and D are the only options left. Out of C and D, C is more concise and brings out the required meaning.

"Interacting with their environment" modifies "Children" not "everyday objects"
So, we can eliminate A, B and E.
Option D is a Jumbled so, we can eliminate it.
Correct answer is Option C.

B. everyday objects teach children through play

C. children learn by playing with everyday objects

D. children play with everyday objects, and in this way, learn

E. everyday objects teach children to play


Intended meaning - Children learn by interacting...

C brings this out perfectly.
D on the other hand, means Children play by interacting.. and learn. It changes the focus of the sentence and intended meaning.

Answer - C

why d is wrong. in d, play and learn is paralel. two actions should not be parallel but in different modification.
learn by playing is more logic in C.

The sentence begins with a dangling modifier so it must be followed by a comma + subject modified by the modifier ...so contenders are C & D ..A,B & E are out
C is more concise also,placement of and after comma in D is wrong .

Hence C is the clear winner here.
