(A) Thumbelina, one of Hans Christian Anderson's first fairy tales, which was first published in 1835, then translated into English in 1846,describing a character some believe is based on the English folk hero Tom Thumb and E.T.A. Hoffman's Meister Flak.
1846
as described above ..it has no main verb ....secondly,it means that the character was described when the tale is being translated in 1846...which is certainly not the intended meaning

Similarly other choices but D have also similar error.

Thumbelina, one of Hans Christian Anderson's first fairy tales, which was first published in 1835, then translated into English in 1846, describing a character some believe is based on the English folk hero Tom Thumb and E.T.A. Hoffman's Meister Flak.

a. Thumbelina, one of Hans Christian Anderson's first fairy tales, which was first published in 1835, then translated into English in 1846, describing a character some believe is based on the English folk hero Tom Thumb and E.T.A. Hoffman's Meister Flak.
No main verb for 'Thumbelina'

b. Having a description of a character some believe is based on the English folk hero Tom Thumb and E.T.A. Hoffman's Meister Flak, Thumbelina, one of Hans Christian Anderson's first fairy tales, was first published in 1835 and then was translated into English in 1846.
The focus of the sentence changes from what 'Thumbelina' describes to when it was published and also the modifier seems awkward making (D) a better choice.

c. Describing a character some believe is based on the English folk hero Tom Thumb and E.T.A. Hoffman's Meister Flak, Thumbelina, one of Hans Christian Anderson's first fairy tales, was first published in 1835 being translated into English in 1846.
Being changes the meaning and misrepresents the sequence of events

d. First published in 1835, and then translated into English in 1846, Thumbelina, one of Hans Christian Anderson's first fairy tales, describes a character some believe is based on the English folk hero Tom Thumb and E.T.A. Hoffman's Meister Flak.
Correct use of modifiers and verb is placed correctly

e. Based on the English folk hero Tom Thumb and E.T.A. Hoffman's Meister Flak, Thumbelina, one of Hans Christian Anderson's first fairy tales, is a character some some believed to describe, having been first published in 1835 and translated into English in 1846.
The verb 'Describe' is far away from what it describes and overall the sentence is awkward and incorrect
