Clouds are formed from the evaporation of the oceans’ water that is warmed by the Sun and rises high into the atmosphere, condensing in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust.

A) Clouds are formed from the evaporation of the oceans’ water that is warmed by the Sun and rises high into the atmosphere, condensing in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust.

B) Clouds form by the Sun’s warmth evaporating the water in the oceans, which rises high into the atmosphere, condensing in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust.

C) Warmed by the Sun, ocean water evaporates, rises high into the atmosphere, and condenses in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust to form clouds.

D) The water in the oceans evaporates, warmed by the Sun, rises high into the atmosphere, and condenses in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust, which forms clouds.

E) Ocean water, warmed by the Sun, evaporates and rises high into the atmosphere, which then condenses in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust to form as clouds.

C

B&E have misplaced modifier
D "forms" should be "form" because particles is plural
A is passive, I prefer C

A

B. which refers to oceans. This illogically says that the oceans evaporate into the atmosphere. Water IN the ocean evaporates into the atmosphere, not the entire ocean.

C: is akward. ,rises high into the atmosphere...

D: rises and evaporates seems redundant to me in this sentence. also I don't think which here refers to a proper referent. does dust create the clouds? no the evaporaporation of water on the dust does, not the dust itself.

E: which has an improper referrent. the atompsher doesn't condense into tiny droplets, the evaporated water does.

Could anybody elaborate a bit more on why A is wrong?

For me it sounds better than C.

Thanks in advance.

One of the reasons why A is wrong:

A) Clouds are formed from the evaporation of the oceans’ water that is warmed by the Sun and rises high into the atmosphere, condensing in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust.

from X and Y - here X and Y should be parallel. However the above coloured sections are not parallel.

IMO C

I rejected A because the sentence does not clear out what for the bold phrase beneath:
A) Clouds are formed from the evaporation of the oceans’ water that is warmed by the Sun and rises high into the atmosphere, condensing in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust.

Actually, the || could be:

Clouds are formed from the evaporation of the oceans’ water that is warmed by the Sun and rises high into the atmosphere, condensing in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust.

Thoughts on that?

"is warmed by the sun,rises high into the atmosphere and condenses..." all 3 actions related with oceans water should be parallel
