present.
B- Sentence starts with a

Cannot modify plural English
Bulldogs.
C - same as B , here one more

English bulldogs( plural)....but it is( singular)
D- Error free
E- removal of "but" leads to no contrast in the sentence

A. the English bulldog, having originally been bred for the brutal sport of bull-baiting, but now is cherished----missing verb
B. English bulldogs were originally bred for the brutal sport of bull-baiting, but they are now cherished-----in the non underlined part we have its--so pronoun number error
C. English bulldogs were originally bred to bait bulls in a brutal sport, but it is now cherished---same as B
D. the English bulldog was originally bred for the brutal sport of bull-baiting, but it is now cherished---correct
E. the English bulldog, originally bred to bait bulls for a brutal sport, is now being cherished---sounds awkward ...

Official Explanation:

ANSWER: D The answer has to refer to “the English bulldog” singular, because the final phrase refers to “a loyal animal companion” singular; therefore, B and C are out. Answer A is incorrect because the “but now” does not work with the phrasing of the sentence. Between D and E, the wording of E is somewhat awkward in that “is now being cherished” is less standard than the simpler “is now cherished”; D is the best answer.
