  Hi Nutty nuts,
Here is the answer for your question:
Read your sentence after removing the modifier.
it would be "An attempt to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment has been unsuccessful despite efforts by many important groups, including the National Organization for Women." This is absolutely correct.
In the rest of the options no modifier does justice to its parent part of sentence.
Hence, A is the answer.
