Correct. "affected" modifies "a spiritualist".

B. that this creator of the famous detective Sherlock Holmes, who valued reason above all other qualities, was a spiritualist and also affected in both his private life and
the structure: "... revealed that ... Sherlock Holmes was a spiritualist and also affected in both his private life and his friendships ..." is wrong since "affected" modifies "Sherlock Holmes" rather than "a spiritalist"

C. this creator of the famous detective Sherlock Holmes, who valued reason above all other qualities, was a spiritualist and that he was affected in both his private life and
"revealed that he was effected in both...", "he" here seems to refer to "Sir Arthur Conan Doyle".

D. this creator of the famous detective Sherlock Holmes, who valued reason above all other qualities, was a spiritualist and that he was affected in both his private life as well as
same as C

E. this creator of the most famous detective Sherlock Holmes, who valued reason above all other qualities, to have been a spiritualist and that he affected himself both in his private life as well as
"to have been..." is awkward.

A. that this creator of the famous detective Sherlock Holmes, who valued reason above all other qualities, was a spiritualist affected in both his private life and
Correct: Affected is -ed modifier correctly modifying nearest noun spiritualist.

B. that this creator of the famous detective Sherlock Holmes, who valued reason above all other qualities, was a spiritualist and also affected in both his private life and
Changes intended meaning of sentence by inserting and also
C. this creator of the famous detective Sherlock Holmes, who valued reason above all other qualities, was a spiritualist and that he was affected in both his private life and
he is ambigious
D. this creator of the famous detective Sherlock Holmes, who valued reason above all other qualities, was a spiritualist and that he was affected in both his private life as well as
he is ambigious
E. this creator of the most famous detective Sherlock Holmes, who valued reason above all other qualities, to have been a spiritualist and that he affected himself both in his private life as well as
to have been is awkward and wordy, no clear reference for he
