213. Clark and Florence Wallace, a husband-and-wife medical team, worked steadily and efficiently through the night, but sipping their coffee the next morning, she noticed that he seemed disoriented. (A) sipping their coffee the next morning, she noticed that he seemed disoriented (B) sipping their coffee the next morning, he seemed to be disoriented, she noticed (C) as they sipped their coffee the next morning, she noticed that he seemed disoriented (D) as they were sipping their coffee the next morning, he seemed, she noticed, disoriented (E) he seemed disoriented, she noticed, sipping their coffee the next morning
When you use the pronoun ‘their’ for sipping the coffee, then a plural subject such as ‘they’ or ‘he and she; should follow as the modified subject. Choices A, B and E instead use the singular she or he. Hence they are out. Between C and D, the former is better because it avoids the use of past progressive and the unnecessary splitting of the verb phrase ‘seemed disoriented” by ‘she noticed’
