Every answer is wrong though D could be better choice with proper punctuation....

(A) Lincoln, discovering in young manhood the secret that the Yankee peddler has learned before him, knew- has learned > past action in present form?

(B) Discovering in young manhood the secret that the Yankee peddler has learned before him, Lincoln knew - has learned > past action in present form?

(C) Lincoln, discovering the secret that the Yankee peddler had learned in young manhood before him, knew - misplaced modifier

(D) In young manhood Lincoln discovered the secret that the Yankee peddler had learned before him: - Missing punctuation?

(E) Lincoln, discovered in young manhood the secret that the Yankee peddler had learned before him, knew - Lincoln is discovered

B for me too.

And i believe in D the answer does not contain ":", but rather ";". Please, verify that. If it indeed has a semicolon, then it would be clearly incorrect, as the phrase right after the semicolon is not complete, as it should.
