I wud choose E. The rest of the choices distorts the meaning of the sentence. How can a derivative be cultivated? It is the plant, madagascar periwinkle, that is cultivated

yeah on second hand I'll go for E.

I was thinking about the modifier problem but must've
omitted E without reading it.

With the options given. E is answer.
but the phrase:
"<derivative> has proved" in all sentences seems not right. my feeling is it shud be <derivative> has been proved
though i know gmat hate passive voice

E is saying the madagascar periwinkle is cultuivated in china whereas it should be its derivative which is cultivated in China right? This is why I eliminated E.

why is C wrong?

My vote is for E

C is wrong because, you cannot cultivate a derivative. You cultivate a plant and then you get the derivative out of it! Its like saying Im growing orange juice. You grow orange and then get juice from those oranges. What say?

(C) A Madagascar periwinkle derivative, which has proved useful in decreasing mortality among young leukemia patients,

C is wrong because it says the derivative is being cultivated instead of the plant.
