A. The success of the first landing on the moon emboldened some scientists to claim that a Mars landing was imminent, vastly underestimating the difficulties entailed in such a feat- underestimating wrongly modifies the The success of the first landing on the moon.

B
Emboldened by the success of the first moon landing, some scientists claimed that a Mars landing was imminent and vastly underestimated the difficulties such a feat had entailed-The modifier and the parallelism part looks fine but the use of had makes this answer choice wrong

C
The first moon landing success emboldened some scientists to claim that a Mars landing was imminent, but the difficulties entailed in such a feat were underestimated
-The sentence might be grammatically right but the first part is in active voice whereas the second part is in passive.Its not preferred in gmat.
D
Vastly underestimating the difficulties entailed in a Mars landing, some scientists, emboldened by the first moon landing, claimed that such a landing was imminent-The construction of this sentence is weird and misses the core meaning.underestimating is not the modifier but the action of scientist that led them to claim a the mars landing prediction

E
Emboldened by the success of the first moon landing, some scientists claimed that a Mars landing was imminent, vastly underestimating the difficulties such a feat entails -looks perfect and the right answer
