In late 1997, the chambers inside the pyramid of the
Pharaoh Menkaure at Giza were closed to visitors for
cleaning and repair due to moisture exhaled by
tourists, which raised its humidity to such levels so
that salt from the stone was crystallizing and fungus
was growing on the walls.
(A) due to moisture exhaled by tourists, which
raised its humidity to such levels so that salt
from the stone was crystallizing
(B) due to moisture that tourists had exhaled,
thereby raising its humidity to such levels that
salt from the stone would crystallize
(C) because tourists were exhaling moisture, which
had raised the humidity within them to levels
such that salt from the stone would crystallize
(D) because of moisture that was exhaled by tourists
raising the humidity within them to levels so high
as to make the salt from the stone crystallize
(E) because moisture exhaled by tourists had raised
the humidity within them to such levels that salt
from the stone was crystallizing































I have a confusion about the correct answer choice. It's in the first spoiler.

in MGMAT it specifies that hte pronoun's antecedent should be clear. In this case, although it's understood, i think the pronoun "them" could modify "tourists" because of the distance. Is this the correct answer choice despite that?

Other options are worse than E.
Sentence correction also involves some logic. MGMAT also considers the meaning of the sentence.

If you don't choose them here you will have to go with its as the pronoun for chambers. Will it be correct? ;-)
