D.

modifying clause (sipping their coffee) in underlined subordinate clause is wrong.

in D the tense is mixed up - past continous and past tense

D) as they were sipping their coffee the next morning, he seemed, she noticed, disoriented

The mixture of past tense and past continous is a problem???

D is also way too choppy. Try reading it out loud. Too many commas...

Clearly C.

(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



The sentence should be consistent on its usage of past tense. "Sipping" makes the action sound like it's currently happening. Hence, eliminate A, B and E.

(D) is weird.. "he seemed, she noticed, disoriented..."

Answer: C
