+1 for A.

(A) she first made copies of more than 50 --> Correct, rectifies diction error and conveys intended meaning

(B) first she made more than 50 copies --> Changes meaning

(C) more than 50 copies first were made --> Wordy and awkward

(D) copies of more than 50 were made --> Verb-Tense error

(E) she copies more than 50 of them beforehand --> Verb-Tense error

Hence, A.

1 + B
Meaning:- when isabelle was forced to sell her husband's collection , first she made more than 50 copies of diaries.
A:- copies of more than 50 is awkward. More than 50 is modifying copies. Here meaning is also not clear.
B:- here intention is clear.
C,D:- passive voice. Who is the doer not clear.
E:- tense issue. It should be past tense.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



B and C change the meaning. She made copies of more than fifty of the diaries, not merely more than fifty copies. If you accept the latter option it could be that she copied the entire collection fifty times. D is passive. That leaves two possibilities: A and E. Choice E is in the wrong tense, however. The sentence begins in the past tense and must continue in the past tense throughout. Choice A is the correct answer.
