C.

Easily eliminate all but C and D. b/c sentence "Published in Harlem" (modifying phrase) should have what was published right after it.

D. the Msnger was owned and edited... Chandler Ownd and A. Philip Randolph, who would later make his reputation... what? his has no proper referent, could be Chandler or Philip. same with who. Who has no clear referent.

Go for C

The only confusion with C is 'and Chandler Owen' the placement of this phrase doesnt make sense at the end for some reason. Shouldnt this be with after ' The Messenger was edited by two young journalists' ???

IMO C. Correctly addresses modifier and past participle issues.

Re: Published in Harlem, the owner and editor of the Messenger [#permalink] New post 11 Mar 2012, 11:06
I'm picked C as the answer:

A. This answer choice has a misplaced modifier. The verb-ed modifier "published in Harlem" seems to be modifying "the owner and editor" - this is incorrect. This modifier should actually be modifying "The Messenger." Also, the relative pronoun "who" refers to which individuals? This is unclear.

B. Again, the initial modifier is misplaced and seems to be incorrectly modifying "two young journalists." However, it is supposed to modify "The Messenger." Again, the relative pronoun "who" is referring to both individuals. This is confusing.

C. This answer choice corrects the misplaced modifier and accurately presents the relative pronoun "who."

D. It is unclear who "who" refers to. The placement of "and published in Harlem" is awkward.

E. Same as D. Although "being" isn't always incorrect, it makes this answer choice much more wordy.

Re: Published in Harlem, the owner and editor of the Messenger [#permalink] New post 20 Sep 2012, 04:34
Hi all

I think with GMAT SC there is normally at least 2 errors per sentence. Below is all that I could find, I’d be interested in hearing about any others you might find.

A – The owner and editor is not published in Harlem. S-V error between owner / editor and were.
B – The two young journalists are not published in Harlem. S-V error between were and owner / editor
C – Correct
D – ‘and published in Harlem’ incorrectly modifies A. Philip Randolph the Labour leader. Is there anything else wrong in this statement
E – S – V error with the owner / editor and the 2 young journalists. ‘Being’ is incorrectly used as it implies that the owner and editor was impersonating two journalist. The subject of the sentence (The owner and editor) require a verb to link to the Messenger. Or it should be 2 separate sentences.

Please throw your 2 cents in on my analysis.... or some kudos if you like.

B.

D alters the meaning, it also has problem with number

There is an antecedent issue "who" has no clear antecedent so 4 choices can be eliminated answer is C..
