C is incorrect because it uses hopefully.

hopefully is not a recognized word by many good grammarians

E it is for correct usage of modifiers

AimHigher, you're right. Now that i look back at it, "hopefully" does look awkward.

Do you now of sentences in which "hopefully" can be used correctly?

E strikes me as the worst of the bunch--awful flow with all those clauses + a passive verb.
