Experts please explain why not C :cry:

Having is almost always incorrect on GMAT. Only case where HAVING is correct is HAVING + PAST PARTICIPLE
e.g.Having studied hard, I scored 700+ on GMAT

A similar type of construction can be found in every Romance language, each having a consistent order of impersonal pronoun, indefinite pronoun, and verb.

"Each having" incorrectly modifies "A similar type of construction".

hence incorrect

It is supposed to modify those words only. Both A & C use adverb modifiers - A uses prep. ph and C uses present participle

after "comma" we need here something that modifies "every roman language" not "a similar type of construction".

I wouldn't say incorrect. The SC part differs from RC and CR in this respect: there can be two or three correct answenrs, but one of them is the most correct. I personally love to use structures with having, but unfortunately this is not strongly recommended on the GMAT :)

Will this apply for all present participle verbs?

Can present participle + past participle construction be always correct?
