E. with roofs of poles and arrowweed that are

The last clause "each a roof..." is trying to modify the "shades".

The "shades" are not "a roof of poles and arrow weed" ... the shades have a roof of poles and arrowweed.

Need "with"
Narrow Choice: C, D, E.

Only E is correct.

A stands.
Another of those much discussed SC's.
E has a problem with "are". Also, it is not clear whether "that" refers to roofs or arrowweed.

Classic SC.

A for multiple reasons:

1. Correct modifier
2. dangling "being" is 99.999999% wrong in GMAT English
3. Short, precise, and succinct
