Germany's most infamous leader, Hitler's policies were responsible for
the slaughter of 6 million Jews.
B. Germany's most infamous leader, the policies of Hitler caused
C. More infamous than other leaders of Germany, the policies of Hitler were responsible for
D. Germany's most infamous leader, Hitler caused
E. Hitler, Germany's most infamous leader, had policies that caused
This question is about the dangling modifier and for me it came down to D vs E.
I very well know that in GMAT a short and simple sentence is a better choice, but then I had a different thought as well.
The given sentence talks about Hitler's policies and this is what E says, whereas D talks about Hitler himself.
Since, I don't wanted to alter the intent of the question, I selected E instead of D.
Could you please help me explain where I'm going wrong here?
