A has verb problems.

All make run on sentences.

joining 2 IC with no conjuction, need (and, but, etc.)

I think the sentence should have a semicolon instead of comma in BCDE choices.

If it has semicolon, then D.

otherwise all are wrong.

cybera,

You gotta be kidding me? It is a run on sentence. You can not use a comma to join two independent clause. No matter what?

Each of the clauses has a subject and a predicate and moreover, the second idependent clause is using a pronoun that refers to the subject of the 1st clause.

Take a look at the structure of the sentence.

IC - The brown recluse spider is rarely fatal,
IC - it causes chronic flesh wounds and poses the greatest danger to infants and the elderly

NRC(Non Rsterictive clause) - who are particularly vulnerable to its poison.

This sentence is wrong in GMAT.

agreed....

either there should be a period or a semi-colon.
