A. Seldom more than 40 feet wide and 12 feet deep, but it ran 363 miles across the rugged wilderness of upstate New York, the Erie Canal connected
The underlined portion is the phrase and should not contain the bold verb "ran"

C. It was seldom more than 40 feet wide and 12 feet deep, and ran 363 miles across the rugged wilderness of upstate New York, but the Erie Canal, connecting

but is a conjunction. Given this the it in the first sentence has no referrent. Anothe problem is the sentence after but has no verb or subject.

D. The Erie Canal was seldom more than 40 feet wide or 12 feet deep and it ran 363 miles across the rugged wilderness of upstate New York, which connected

which refers to Newyork - hence wrong

E. The Erie Canal, seldom more than 40 feet wide and 12 feet deep, but running 363 miles across the rugged wilderness of upstate New York, connecting
If you takeout the underlined portion then the sentence lacks verb and/or subject.

(B) does not have any problems.

Thanks Praetorian. I hope to spend more time on verbal section than on Quantitative section. However I will look into interesting problems in the quantitative section.
It is so much fun to be on this forum.

Yes, good to see you back Anandnk. Indeed, there is only so much you can do after writing the GMAT and I also decided to stay more on the verbal side of the forum. You'll soon have to tell us about your applications buddy.

Hi Paul,

I have applied to Harvard, MIT and Sloan in the 2nd round. I have my fingers crossed. I hope for the best.
I will try to apply in the October 2005 (Ist round ) all the above schools and to Kellogg, Stanford, Columbia and Tuck.

Cheers,
Anand.
