(A)

A. Minivans carry as many as seven passengers and, compared with most sport utility vehicles, cost less,
satisfies parallel requirement

B. Minivans, which carry as many as seven passengers, compared with most sport utility vehicles, they cost less,
"they" is wrong

"they" is wrong, "have a lower cost" is not as good as "cost less"

D. Minivans, carrying as many as seven passengers, compared with most sport utility vehicles, cost less,
"carrying" is wrong

E. Minivans, which carry as many as seven passengers, compared with most sport utility vehicles the cost is lower, and they

Why "carrying" is wrong, HongHu?


It's (A)

"carrying" in (D) is not appropriate because it qualifies only those minivans which carry as many as seven people.

The unofficial answer was D (somebody had solved it).
I had picked A. Since most agree, I think A is the answer.
