I think the problem with C is with the first sentence itself.
Named for the new Mexico site where they have been first discovered in 1932.
It isn't a complete sentence, this is the so called fragment?

A, or the first one, is correct.
The rest have tense problems and/or are awkward.

A)the intended contrast is pretty clear

b)use of AND in later part of s/c fades the contrast

c)the s/c has omited the contrast and has put the s/c in simple terms ;
and wrng tense------->have been found

d)were is plural

e) while is incorrect choice for creating contrast

A

The answer is A

C) cant be cuz of the tense-have been discovered in 1932-

d) Even tough and but is not right use so i eliminated it

e) have been discovered in 1932 so it is gone.

But I couldt find anything wrong in B. So there is anyone can explain to me that where is the problem on B?

Hello all,

Any one can tell why they used present tense here "...they are named for ...", i thought this must be "were named" since the naming action is described very clearly at the time "when were first discovered in 1932". I'm puzzled with such detail and cannot go with A.

Thanks.

Is there a clear referent for they in A?
1) Even though Clovis points , spear points with longitudinal grooves chipped onto their faces, have been found all over north America, they are named for the new Mexico site where they were first discovered in 1932.

Couldn't they be referring to faces instead of Clovis points? Please can someone explain?

OA is A. Why is there no pronoun ambiguity in "spear points with longitudinal grooves chipped onto their faces, " ????

Hey,
I hope i can help u...
1st of all, ambiguity is only a "style" mistake and therefor you wont always find a solution that fixes it.

2nd - every other answer is bad - and A is the only one without bigger mistakes so no real dilemma here,...

Even though Clovis points, spear points with longitudinal grooves chipped onto their faces, have been found all over North America, they are named for the New Mexico site where they were ﬁrst discovered in 1932.

1. Even though Clovis points, spear points with longitudinal grooves chipped onto their faces, have been found all over North America,
- Colored one is the appositive describing the points
2. they are named for the New Mexico site
3. where they were ﬁrst discovered in 1932.

Nothing wrong in A

(A) Even though Clovis points, spear points with longitudinal grooves chipped onto their faces,have been found all over North America, they are named for the New Mexico site where they were ﬁrst discovered in 1932.

(B) Although named for the New Mexico site where ﬁrst discovered in 1932, Clovis points are spear points of longitudinal grooves chipped onto their faces and have been found all over North America.-- Meaning changed contrast should be between where they have been found and for what they have been named.

(C) Named for the New Mexico site where they have been ﬁrst discovered in 1932, Clovis points, spear points of longitudinal grooves chipped onto the faces, have been found all over North America.-- with time frame simple past should be used, no contradictory clauses

(D) Spear points with longitudinal grooves that are chipped onto the faces, Clovis points, even though named for the New Mexico site where ﬁrst discovered in 1932, but were found all over North America.- no verbs for subject clovis ; use of even though , but in same sentence makes it wrong

(E) While Clovis points are spear points whose faces have longitudinal grooves chipped into them, they have been found all over North America, and named for the New Mexico site where they have been ﬁrst discovered in 1932.- they named for-> wrong helping verb are , were required. also the meaning is changed

So ans :A
