consistently being reworked by contemporary economists.

A) Previously adopted as the basis of classical economics, Adam Smith’s ‘The Wealth of Nations’ proposed a theoretical framework, and it is ---illogical to say 'the wealth' proposed something...
B) Once it was adopted as the basis of classical economics, but Adam Smith’s ‘The Wealth of Nations’ proposed a theoretical framework and is ---Same as A.
C) Once adopted as the basis of classical economics, the theoretical framework proposed in Adam Smith’s ‘The Wealth of Nations’ ---No Verb
D) The theoretical framework proposed in Adam Smith’s ‘The Wealth of Nations’, once adopted as the basis of classical economics, is ---Correct
E) The theoretical framework proposed in Adam Smith’s ‘The Wealth of Nations’ was once adopted as the basis of classical economics and ---No verb after 'and'


IMO D for the errors highlighted in the other options.
