Between A and E.

I choose E as 'and' in A makes gives it an awkward construction.

OA?

E - for no reason other than it sounds slightly better than A.

What about the "rejoined by" , "rejoined through" and "rejoined because of" are any of these idiomatic expressions?

After which, subsequently redundant? Can someone verify? Thanks!


As per my analysis of this question

some astronomers suggest that at one time..

So its best to the subject first and only D and E does that..

D had having incorrect but I had no solid reason to eliminate the other choices!

hi,

i dont think there is an idiomatic usage...and that is not the split here.the error her is the wrong referent of WHICH.
AS WHICH has a referent to the closeset noun....and here its creating ambiguity in wrong answer choices.

Because Miranda, the smallest moon of Uranus, has a large number of different surface features, including craters, mountains, valleys, and fractures, some astronomers suggest that at one time repeated impacts broke the surface apart, and after which the fragments were subsequently rejoined because of mutual gravitational attraction.

A. repeated impacts broke the surface apart, and after which the fragments were subsequently rejoined becaust of===>here comma AND is used...means two IC are separated but second IC starts with AFTER WHICH....here we dont know....what is WHICH refering to==hence not an IC==>WRONG
B.repeated impacts on the surface broke it apart, after which the fragments having rejoined with===>WHAT is which referring to SURFACE or REPEATED IMPACTS....logic wise it should refer to REPEATED IMPACTS ...but here its ambiguous.==>incorrect
C.through repeated impacts that the surface broke apart, after which the fragments subsequently rejoined by===>firstly its a fragment...secondly incorrect referent of WHICH.
SOME ASTRONOMER SUGGEST THAT AT ONE TIME THROUGH REPEATED IMPACTS.......now after this use of THAT introduces a new clause hence makes sentence fragment.
D.the surface broke apart with repeated impacts, after which the fragments having rejoined through.==>here WHICH has a correct referent REPEATED IMPACT....but the use of having rejoined makes it wrong===>it means fragment was already joined through gravitational attraction===>hence wrong.
E.the surface broke apart as a result of repeated impacts, after which the fragments rejoined through. ===>correct referent of WHICH and correct intended meaning.

hence its E.
HOPE it helps.
