A. Why painting the face and perfuming the body should have persisted --> A is clearly telling us what has been the subject of something.

B. How painting the face and perfuming the body could be persistent --> Change in meaning.

C. That painting the face and perfuming the body are persisting --> Fact is not the subject.

D. Painting the face and perfuming the body persisting --> Again, change in meaning. We need why these were the subject.

E. The persisting of face painting and body perfuming --> If this would have been corrected, then we should have used "have been the subject".

Hey prateek176 ,

Option B is incorrect because it is changing the meaning of the original sentence. We are saying "why something is being done" but in option B, we are saying "how it is being done". Did you see the change in meaning?

Let me take an example:

Why are you going to school? Here I am asking you the reason for going to school. - To Study, dance, etc.

How are you going to school? Here I am asking you the way you are going to school. - By Bus, your own car, etc.

Does that make sense?
