D is best. 45 sec
A) scholar's [their] categorizing of Tacitus's. "of" would have been needed as idiom is "the categorizing(noun) of X"

I go with A.

Modern critics are amused not by scholars, but by their categorization of
Tacitusâ€™s Germania as an ethnographic treatise.

C,D,E seem to imply that Modern critics are amused by the scholars

Between A and B, the phrase "as if an" should be "as if it were" in B

Hence A
