This sentence needs to be in the past tense because it describes a previous habitual lifestyle of the mojave, so B, D, and E are definately out.

Between A or C, being in C sounds awkward.

I also rule out B,D and E.

But I think A is a fragment, it needs a verb.
I do not like the being in C either...

Tough question, is there a OA?

I'll go for A,

the mojave lived implies that the sentence is in pasts tense.
That rules out A, D and E.
And the phrase, with eash being a roof sounds a bit off and we also know
that being should be picked very carefully. So I go for A.

This is a somewhat wierd sentence! I chose based on POE!
No one thinks A does not sound alright?

Rahul> keep in mind that the makers of the GMAT present the word being as a trap answer 99.99999999% of the time.
