I agree with A.

C is close but I think it distorts the meaning, is n't it? some one shred more light on this option why it is wrong?

C IMO

I feel the real meaning is that the frictionless "wings" are smooth and perfect, so don't cause turbulence in air
This meaning is better than saying that the process of shaping was smooth and perfect.

Not sure, but I would have picked C

OA?

(A) wings, shaped so smoothly and perfectly---->talks about how it has been shaped i.e process of shaping(out of question)
(B) wings, wings so smooth and so perfectly shaped--->Bogus
(C) wings that are shaped so smooth and perfect---->talks about wings that are....so winner
(D) wings, shaped in such a smooth and perfect manner--->talks about how wings have been shaped not about wings
(E) wings, having been shaped smoothly and perfectly so---->Bakwas

Agree with the above explanation. "shaped so smoothly and perfectly" sounds as if the process of shaping was smooth and perfect.
IMO C
