Here "on" means "onwards".
For example - I'm available from six o'clock onwards

So if we again read the sentence by replacing "on" with "onwards" then it becomes:
The most widely known images of Yosemite National Park are those made by photographer Ansel Adams, who photographed it continually from his teenage years onwards.

So now this makes more sense.

Kudos plz if my reply helped. Need to unlock GMATCLUB Tests

"From his teenage years on" is like referring to the phrase: "From then on". Except 'then' in this sentence refers to the teenage years.
The word 'then' refers to a specific point in time, which could be in the past or in the future (depends on the context).
The word 'on' refers to the time that follows 'then'

In the sentence, "who photographed it continually from his teenage years on" implies, starting from his teenage years he photographed it continually.

A is just a more concise way of rephrasing C.

lucbesson,

I arrived at correct answer. My POE is below.

B & C....

who photographed it [national park] starting in his teenage years and ......

For me the list before "and" and after "and" didnt seem parallel

D & E...

The most widely known images of Yosemite National Park are those made by photographer Ansel Adams, who photographed it continually from his teenage years on.

a) who photographed it continually from his teenage years on OK - At first, I thought "continually" + "years on" were redundant and "it" didn't have an antecedent (as Yosemite... is in a prepositional phrase), so I looked for a better sentence. There were none. This is the best among the five here.

b) who photographed it starting from his teenage years and then continually "and then continually" looked normal but it is actually far from normal. "And" joins a participle and an adverb? Never seen such a thing. Out.

c) who photographed it starting in his teenage years and continually from then on Same as above. Additionally, "continually from then on" is redundant. "Continually" already means "then on".

d) having photographed it continually since his teenage years "having" doesn't secure modifier to Ansel Adams. It's implied, but A is still a better choice.

e) having photographed it starting in his teenage years and then continually Same errors as above - redundancy, parallelism, and.. sort of a dangling modifier.

IMO A

Bcos there is nothing else to which "it" can refer to. It must refer to an object.
Another rule is that "it" is never used for a person. A person is usually referred to by "he", "she", "him", "her", etc.

ِD, E: 'having photographed' modifies the subject of the sentence, i.e. 'images'. This does not make sense. Hence, this modifier is dangling in both sentences.

B, C: 'starting' modifies 'it'

I couldn't connect 'it' to the park . Thought Ansel Adams, who photographed them (images) would have been appropriate?

You photograph something (the park), you take photographs.

"from+ noun+ on" is the idiom we have to know.

starting in b and c have no grammarical position. wrong.
having done in e and d are wrong.

comma+having done modifies preceding clause, not preceding noun.
even, if there is no comma, noun+having done dose not exist in gmat land.
d ,and e are out

starting in b and c modify what phrase? no grammatical role, b and c are out

Hi,
Initially, I have the same question as you and would dare to choose any answer choice that have plural pronoun instead of "it". But carefully study make me understand "it" refers to "Yosemite National Park", as "Ansel Adams photographed it". Nothing is ambiguous here.
Cheers.

Hi Experts,

In B and C the conjunction AND is not correctly used.

Can you'll please clarify the errors in B and C?

IMO:

In both "starting from his teenage years and then continually" seems to modify "it"(Yosemite National Park) and that is illogical ...
Park can't be in teenager age......
