C is the trap answer because it incorrectly modifies "years."

Answer should be (D).

Great SC Christin!

Yes, it should be D.

"where" needs to modify Tahiti...and "having" needs to modify Paul.

Great question!

P.s. a vacation in Tahiti sounds good to me right now! :)

D it is.

A and C are out in the first look.

B is out because of wrong tense.

E is modiying the meaning. As if he had difficulty returning to Paris because of hectic pace.
