people's newly acquired skills and also new factual information are not parallel right ?

people's newly acquired skills - adjective

new factual information - noun (if we take people's common then 'people's new factual information' doesn't make sense right ?)

people's newly acquired skill is a noun too. The noun is 'skills' and rest everything modifies 'skills'.

Same is the case with 'new factual information'. 'Information' is the noun and everything else modifies it.

When we use ' people's newly acquired skills' and new factual information', there is a question mark on new factual information. We are clarifying that we are talking about people's skills but not clarifying that we are talking about new information people acquired.
On the whole, it is not very clear and hence I wouldn't prefer it.

Thankfully, we have a much better option (and without modifier error) in (D)!

A,B,C illogical modification of sleep and people's skills, not people.

E - redundancy with 'adequate' and 'need'

Hey Experts,
Regarding option "A"
I understood the modifier sentence "Without adequate amounts of sleep" is trying to modify people's skill and on that basis, I can terminate this answer choice..
My main doubt is since there is no Subject-verb in this modifier, does that also lead to wrong construction?
