The answers are A and B for me too.

1A. Because they clearly refers to the senior officials, and as Ritesh pointed out... - subjunctive mood.

2B. The misplaced modifier rule is being tested here. the face of the statue is modelled after that of his mother's (face) and the body after that of his wife's (body)
