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.

It's C. The others do not make grammatical sense. Try to simplify the sentence if you're not sure of the answer. Where there is a sub clause between two commas, you should be able to remove it whilst leaving a sentence taht makes sense.
Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully
coordinating them with her narratives, capitalized
on her keen observation and love of the natural
world.

in her book illustrations is a sub clause. Take it away and the sentence makes no sense.... Beatrix Potter, carefully coordinating them... coordinating what? wrong answer.

B. In her book illustrations, carefully coordinating
them with her narratives, Beatrix Potter

can you see that this doesn't flow? In her book illustrations, coordinating them? It should read: in her book illustrations... Beatrix Potter + verb (did something etc) or Beatrix Potter carefully coordinated her book illustrations with her narrative. It is disjointed,clumsy and therefore wrong.

(D) Carefully coordinated with her narratives,
Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations
This confuses subject and object. What is carefully coordinated with her narratives? her book illustrations. So why does the sentence continue with Beatrix Potter? It should read: Because they are carefully coordinated with her narratives, her book illustrations (just an example) allow the reader to visualise the story.

E.(E) Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully
coordinated them with her narratives and

What does this mean? What did she coordinate in her book illustrations? It should say Beatrix Potter carefully coordinated her book illustrations with her narratives.

Only C is a propertly constructed sentence. In her illustrations WHICH she coordinated with... she did X.

hope this helps

Another C.

All others have modifier problems. The subject is not placed close
to the modifier. There's also a pronoun problem by using "them"
