The Chicago and Calumet Rivers originally flowed into the St. Lawrence by way of Lake Michigan, but having been redirected by constructing canals so that the water now empties into the Mississippi by way of the Illinois River.

My question is - if the answer choice B was written as - Rivers originally flowed into the St. Lawrence by way of Lake Michigan, but they have been redirected by constructing - will the choice 'B' still be incorrect ?
