(A) herpetologists studying rattlesnake venom must exercise caution
What is rarely fatal? Herpetologists studying rattlesnake venom? Makes no sense

(B) the study of rattlesnake venom requires caution on the part of herpetologists
What is raraly fatal? The study of rattlesnake venom? Yeah, I know that studying is killing us but this is not the case

(C) caution on the part of herpetologists is necessary when studying herpetologists
This sentence doesn't suggest what is rarely fatal

(D) rattlesnake venom must be studied with caution, even by herpetologists
this is the correct choice, the first part correctly modify rattlesnake venom

(E) studying rattlesnake venom requires herpetologists to be cautious
this suggest that the act of studying rattlesnake venom is fatal. Makes no sense

Official Explanation :

As written this sentence has a misplaced modifier: herpetologists aren't generally fatal but rattlesnake might be. Choices (A), (B), and (C) all have this error and can be eliminated.

Choice (E) replaces herpetologists with studying, which isn't really a noun nor is it fatal. Correct answer is (D).

The correct choice has "even by herpetologists" , which is not described in the original sentence.\
So IMO it is wrong.

Can anyone explain please.

Anyone else find this sentence a little weird? I feel like it's missing a few commas, or maybe I'm just tired...
