A. which is also credited with having popularized the modern image of Santa Claus and having pioneered the use of product placement -Correct
B. which, while popularizing the modern image of Santa Claus, pioneered the use of product placement -Changes the meaning. Coca cola did 2 things: popularise and pioneer. While this option states that coca cola popularised Santa and at the same time pioneered the use of PP
C. which, after being credited with popularizing the modern image of Santa Claus, pioneered the use of product placement -Same as B
D. which is also credited with popularizing the modern image of Santa Claus, pioneering the use of product placement -"and" is required before pioneering
E. popularizing the modern image of Santa Claus and pioneering the use of product placement -This changes the meaning. It means that Coca cola supported Amsterdam games while at the same time popularised Santa and pioneered the use of PP
