Five fledgling sea eagles left their nests in western Scotland this summer,
"bringing" to 34 the number of wild birds successfully raised since transplants
from Norway began in 1975.
(B) and brings
(c) and it brings
(D) and it brought
(E) and brought
In D & E "brought" is incorrect as it the time frame refers to "this summer", which means it is current.
In C, "it" is a hanging reference, unclear what it is referring to.
In B, I can't give you an exact answer why B is wrong but I think its is because the process of transplanting wild birds is continuing from 1975 which means the total number of birds released is continuously updated. The latest release updates the total...
If anyone has a better/exact explanation why B is wrong please post... I would like to know too.
Need some helping hands.
Can someone highlight the rules followed to arrive at 'A'
