Statements with "involving" are adverbial phrases. They did not contain a standard verb to modify.

While D is run-on, B is correct as the verb "involved" modifies "widespread changes in agriculture".

Re: Agrarian revolution [#permalink] New post 17 Jun 2010, 01:14
B

The main clause in this sentense is
widespread changes in agriculture involving the large-scale introduction of enclosed fields, of new farming techniques and crops, and the substitution of commercial for subsistence farming

Obviously from above, involving is wrong tense. Most of the other answers clubs "involved......crops, and" to the subordinate phrase "the eg....... revolution" with that. Doing so makes the main clause itself incomplete.

Does this make sense?

A. revolution, involving the large-scale introduction of enclosed fields, of new farming techniques and crops, and - not parallel

B. revolution, involved the large-scale introduction of enclosed fields and of new farming techniques and crops, and - involved the introduction of X and of Y, and the substitution of new farming..... - CORRECT

C. revolution, which involved the large-scale introduction of enclosed fields and of new farming techniques and crops, and - incomplete sentence

D. revolution involved the large-scale introduction of enclosed fields, new farming techniques and crops, and of - we need 'of' for 'new farming techniques'

E. revolution that involved the large-scale introduction of enclosed fields and new farming techniques and crops, and of - awkward
