Option A.
This option does not follow the proper arrangement and analysis. And it also lacks proper modifier.

Option B. It is clear that this doesn't flow.This option lacks proper arrangement. It does not follow the right proper sequence.

Option c.
This is the correct option as this option clearly gives a nice construction on her work. Beatrix Potter is the action performer and it is very close to the action stated in the sentence. And it also follows parallelism.

Option D. This option suffers bad arrangement of elements as it conflicts the subject and the object. Thuss, this option is incorrect

Option E.
This does not mean anything reasonable because there was bad grammatical construction.

Yes,to keep it simple as Jay has pointed out,

....."capitalized on her keen observation" who?
so,This clause is modifying the Subject "Beatrix Potter"
So,A sentence that uses a logical flow of modifiers and places them in correct order will be the best one.
