+1 for E.

(A) skilled artisans have now restored some original famous paintings during the Italian Renaissance.

(B) some original famous paintings during the Italian Renaissance now have been by skillful artisans restored. --> Wordy and not-much-concise

(C) the restoration of some original famous paintings during the Italian Renaissance has been done by skilled artisans.

(D) skilled artisans during the Italian Renaissance have now restored some original famous paintings.

(E) some original famous paintings during the Italian Renaissance have now been restored by skilled artisans. --> Correct, rectifies modifier error and conveys intended meaning

Hence, E.

Misplaced modifier in A, C, D
Who was convered in debries?
Paintings

Between B and E---> In B, have been + Verb
Not have been + preposition . The latter is a train wreck.

Answer seems E

Thank you = Kudos

The highlighted part modifies what comes after it.... ( Options A, C and D can hence be negated )

Error in option (B) highlighted , correct answer must be (E)

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



What was covered? Some original famous paintings. The rest are like certain garnishes in a cocktail.

With modifying phrases at the beginning of the sentence, just determine what is being modified and select the answer which places that item directly after the phrase. Which
have the correct opening? *B* *E*

B needlessly separates subject from verb, creating a very awkward construction. This makes *E* the better choice.
