I guess the "it" in choice B is ambiguous, does it refer to tomato or belladonna

In A, â€˜and harmlessâ€™ does not sound right actually it is considered harmless.
B has bad â€˜itâ€™ which may have multiple potential referent.
Modifiers needs to be close to the close to the what they are modifying. Not the case in E.
C unnecessarily uses â€˜itselfâ€™.
Left with D.
