Per intended meaning sentence is :

While Florence Nightingale is famous for
caring tirelessly for the British soldiers in Turkey during the Crimean War
and
developing new standards for management and hygiene in hospitals,
no less important are her promotion of statistical analyses in the field of medicine

All is good except SV agreement in the second part of the sentence

A) Eliminate for reasons mentioned above

B) Awkward sentence/ Being wrongly used /Meaning changed

C) No verb for "her promotion of statistical analyses"

D) Meaning changed + SV agreement error

E) Original identified S-V error is resolved in this sentence

(E) is the right answer IMO

While Florence Nightingale is famous for caring tirelessly for the British soldiers in Turkey during the Crimean War and developing new standards for management and hygiene in hospitals, no less important are her promotion of statistical analyses in the field of medicine.

A) Crimean War and developing new standards for management and hygiene in hospitals, no less important are her promotion of statistical analyses in the field of medicine -> We don't need plural verb "are". Incorrect.

B) Crimean War, she developed new standards for management and hygiene in hospitals, with her promotion of statistical analyses in the field of medicine being no less important -> being is incorrect to use.

C) Crimean War and the development of new standards for management and hygiene in hospitals, her promotion of statistical analyses in the field of medicine, which is no less important -> caring and development are not parallel. Incorrect.

D) Crimean War, no less important is her developing new standards for management and hygiene in hospitals and her promotion of statistical analyses in the field of medicine -> no less is changing the intended the meaning. Incorrect.

E) Crimean War and developing new standards for management and hygiene in hospitals, her promotion of statistical analyses in the field of medicine is no less important -> Parallelism corrected. "no less" is better used also.

So, I think E.

[b]IMO E . took me 1.40

While Florence Nightingale is famous for caring tirelessly for the British soldiers in Turkey during the Crimean War and developing new standards for management and hygiene in hospitals, no less important are her promotion of statistical analyses in the field of medicine.

A) Subject Verb error, also after comma we should have some sort of a contrast While She is famous for x and y, Her Contribution in the field of PQR should not be forgotten..... This structure is missing in A , B and D.

B) Crimean War, she developed new standards for management and hygiene in hospitals, with her promotion of statistical analyses in the field of medicine being no less important - Apart from the error mentioned in A , Being is unnecessary and the sentence is wordy.

C) Crimean War and the development of new standards for management and hygiene in hospitals, her promotion of statistical analyses in the field of medicine, which is no less important --- Which refers to what ? this isnt clear, also no verb after her...

D) Crimean War, no less important is her developing new standards for management and hygiene in hospitals and her promotion of statistical analyses in the field of medicine - Akward construct and distorted meaning.

E) Crimean War and developing new standards for management and hygiene in hospitals, her promotion of statistical analyses in the field of medicine is no less important - Correct Answer , correct contrast being depicted.
