I guess it is D.

Modern critics are amused by scholars ..so only D and E
as is better than if ..if does not make sense at all.

So is it C?
(btw, I didn't notice that C is using "scholars" in my first attempt)

In the case of (C)
As it has "as" and uses "scholars" rather than "scholarsâ€™ categorizing"
And in this case " categorizing of Tacitusâ€™s Germania as " would be a phrase

A it is.
Modern critics are amused by " scholarsâ€™ categorizing Tacitusâ€™s Germania as .. " not by scholars. Only A makes sense.. B uses imporper If.

(A) for me. Critics are amused by scholar's categorization, not the scholars, so (C), (D) and (E) are out
(B) is wrong due to the 'if'
