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

B. Minivans, which carry as many as seven passengers, compared with most sport utility vehicles, they cost less,
- 'they' refers to sport utility vehicles and changes the meaning of the sentence. the phrasing is always awkward here

C. Minivans carry as many as seven passengers, in comparison with most sport utility vehicles, and have a lower cost, they


D. Minivans, carrying as many as seven passengers, compared with most sport utility vehicles, cost less,
- awkward phrasing

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

Between A and C, I'll go with A. The extra 'they' at the end of C is not required.

A for me.

Agree with yall.

A is the man.

B and E have extra problems. Both these choices use which and start a restrictive clause and changes the meaning of the sentence completely.

Both choices seem to indicate that "all minivans can accomodate 7 passagesrs". Or the thing that carries as many as 7 passangers is a minivan.

B and C cause run-on sentences. No conjunction.

D seems to make a list and is fogetting verbs in between.

Very clearly A.

Ywilfred has very clearly explained why other choices are wrong, and I have nothing more add to it.

I think the answer should be D.

"carry as many as..." should be a modifing clause, so that the sentence is clearly structured.


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

The first half sentence has little to do with the latter one. I think there should be a fullstop here to make the first half a complete sentence. Or there should be a subject before "cost less...".
