Water gels, applied to pieces of art using small sponges that slowly release chemical solvents onto the artwork first used in the early 1980s, are minimizing potential damage to original artwork.

A) Water gels, applied to pieces of art using small sponges that slowly release chemical solvents onto the artwork first used in the early 1980s, are minimizing
B) Water gels, first used in the early 1980s, apply to pieces of art with small sponges in order to slowly release chemical solvents onto the artwork and minimize
C) Water gels, first used in the early 1980s, being applied to pieces of art with small sponges in order to slowly release chemical solvents onto the artwork, minimizing
D) Water gels, first used in the early 1980s and applied to pieces of art with small sponges, slowly release chemical solvents onto the artwork, minimizing
E) Water gels, first used in the early 1980s, are applied and put on pieces of art with small sponges in order to slowly release chemical solvents onto the artwork, minimize

It is all about knowing what is modifying what and then placing them correctly.

pieces of art USING small sponges -- It illogically means that there are art works that use small sponges!
onto the artwork first used in the early 1980s -- again first used in the early 1980s can modify sponges or water gels and logically not to artwork.

B) Water gels, first used in the early 1980s, apply to pieces of art with small sponges in order to slowly release chemical solvents onto the artwork and minimize

first used in the early 1980s is correctly placed to modify water gels, but water gels APPLY.. Can they? No, they ARE APPLIED.
minimize -- minimize could parallel with release or apply !!

Quote:
C) Water gels, first used in the early 1980s, being applied to pieces of art with small sponges in order to slowly release chemical solvents onto the artwork, minimizing

Back to back modifiers -- first used..., being applied...., minimizing...
Main VERB -- There is NO verb with main subject water gel.

Quote:
D) Water gels, first used in the early 1980s and applied to pieces of art with small sponges, slowly release chemical solvents onto the artwork, minimizing

first used in the early 1980s and applied to pieces of art with small sponges -- both modifiers are parallel and are placed correctly to modify water gels.
main verb -- release is the main verb and is correctly used
minimizing..... -- the ING modifier is correctly modifying and talking about the previous action.
CORRECT

Quote:
E) Water gels, first used in the early 1980s, are applied and put on pieces of art with small sponges in order to slowly release chemical solvents onto the artwork, minimize

Two verbs are applied and minimize are not connected by any conjunction

C
