The sentence is in present perfect. So the underlined portion should start with 'seen' rather than with 'saw'. This eliminates A, B and C.

E uses the wrong modifier.
Hence the answer is D, which uses the correct modifier.

D 2..
Visitors to the park have often looked up +> eliminates A, B, and C.
D is concise and effective and serves the purpose.

In (E), seen monkeys sleeping on the branches, whose arms and legs have hung

I still don't get it.
How "whose" modify branches, but not "monkey"?

Hi.

"Whose" is a noun modifier and as a general rule noun modifiers need to follow the touch rule i.e. they should touch the noun they seek to modify.

Visitors to the park have often looked up into the leafy canopy and saw monkeys sleeping on the branches, whose arms and legs hang like socks on a clothesline.

(A) saw monkeys sleeping on the branches, whose arms and legs hang
(B) saw monkeys sleeping on the branches, whose arms and legs were hanging
(C) saw monkeys sleeping on the branches, with arms and legs hanging
(D) seen monkeys sleeping on the branches, with arms and legs hanging
(E) seen monkeys sleeping on the branches, whose arms and legs have hung

In D , phrase '' with arms and legs hanging" seems to modify visitors. therefore I found it incorrect
