I pick B.
C is obviously wrong.
Look at it : "In 1905 BÃ©la BartÃ³k and ZoltÃ¡n KodÃ¡ly began their pioneering work in ethnomusicology, traveling the back roads of Hungary armed only" ----> "armed" is in passive form , it must follow a to-be verb or "get" . In C, "armed" seems to support " Hungary"--->wrong!

Would a comma after Hungary help C become the better choice? Somehow B seems a little too wordy and awkward. But so does C.
I chose C!

Im going against the grain here. C isnt a choppy as B, yet conveys the same point. OA please

I choose C.
B seems to be too fragmented and doesn't sound good too.

I pick C.

(A) Traveling the back roads of Hungary, in 1905 BÃ©la BartÃ³k and ZoltÃ¡n KodÃ¡ly began their pioneering work in ethnomusicology, and they were armed only
>> No. Traveling the .... and they were. The beginning not related to the end (if that makes sense).

(B) In 1905, BÃ©la BartÃ³k and ZoltÃ¡n KodÃ¡ly, traveling the back roads of Hungary, began their pioneering work in ethnomusicology, and they were only armed
>> No. Who began their pioneering?

(C) In 1905 BÃ©la BartÃ³k and ZoltÃ¡n KodÃ¡ly began their pioneering work in ethnomusicology, traveling the back roads of Hungary armed only
>>Yes. This makes sense start to finish.

(D) Having traveled the back roads of Hungary, in 1905 BÃ©la BartÃ³k and ZoltÃ¡n KodÃ¡ly began their pioneering work in ethnomusicology; they were only armed
>> No. 99% of the time, any sentence beginning with 'Having' is wrong.

(E) BÃ©la BartÃ³k and ZoltÃ¡n KodÃ¡ly, in 1905 began their pioneering work in ethnomusicology, traveling the back roads of Hungary, arming themselves only
>> No. Doesn't sound right.

I like B best. The other choices make modification errors.
