Why ''including...'' can't modify previous clause here? I considered that part a modifier and chose A, as I thought it gives a new meaning which is more meaningful!

Hi rma26, the property that you've mentioned (modify previous clause) is applicable for participial phrases.

The word including is actually a preposition (not a present participle) and hence, the normal rules of present participles do not apply to including.

p.s. Our book EducationAisle Sentence Correction Nirvana makes a special note of this usage of including. Have attached the corresponding section of the book, for your reference.

(B) Vir, examples of the earliest monumental art known from central and western Europe, include
(C) Vir, earliest of monumental art known from central and western Europe, include
(D) Vir are examples of the earliest monumental art known from central and western Europe and includes
(E) Vir are examples of the earliest monumental art known from central and western Europe, including


look at choice C.
"boulders " can not be "art". this meaning/logic error is typical of gmat. be ready to see the frequency of this error on SC. frankly speaking, this kind of error is basis of gmat SC apart from grammar points.
gmat test this kind of error to make our formal written english logic. in spoken english, we say

5 eggs per week is good for health

this is wrong in formal written english because 5 eggs can not be good.

eating 5 eggs per week is good for health

this is logic.

this point is very simple and can be learned easily but is fatally important. we need to change our thinking of spoken english.
