Choose C.

It can't be A or B. The "ancient" anasazi cannot "now call".

E is awkward due to use of "it". Between C & D pick C for conciseness.

The ancient Anasazi harvested such native desert vegetation as the purple-flowered bee plant, now commonly called wild spinach in northern Arizona and other parts of the southwestern United States.

Anyone please explain what kind of construction is this?
Is it an absolute construction or modifier???

How to differentiate between a modifier coming in the last and an absolute construction which contains Noun and/or some modifer???

Is there any specific rule?
