Even if you liked the structure of D or E, the modern critics are commenting on "early scholars" who did their categorizing in the past, not the present, so the phrase "who categorize" is a huge clue that those are not the way to go.

As the critics are surprised by scholars action options C,D,E are ruled out.
The answer can be either A or B
Plural of scholar is Scholars,hence to show plural possession, apostrophe is kept after the s.
