Only C makes it clear that monestaries were chiseled from solid rock.

It is not clear what "them" refers to.
The subject of the previous phrase is "mountainous regoins" but the closest noun is "monasteries".

C does not have any ambiguities.

Now, there is another post for this same problem, and as the other post and The SC1000's answer indicate the answer is E.

The professor might not be able to get 51/51 on the verbal.

Once again, what's wrong with C?

"dotting" is downright pathetic. I disagree with the OA on this one.

I prefer E to C, because "monastries are dotting" seems a bit curious, as if they were right in the process of dotting the mountains.

Asadeep said it is not clear whether them refers to mountains or monastries.
But "them", in this sentence, cannot refer to mountains, because it must modify the group of words just before the comma.

As in this example(may be I'm wrong!):

The trees bear apples, large and red.
The trees bear apples, many of them large and red.

I prefer B

Flip the sentence and you get B as the winner

Mountainous regions cannot be "chiseled." Wrong modifier.

C is wrong for using dotting. This implies that it is an ongoing process.
dot has to be used to convey the correct meaning.
I'm going with E here.

I guess, in this case, passive voice is less evil than "Dotting"

Why D can not be correct.

GMAT prefers not to use which but in this case which clearly refers to monasteries.
