E is the best of the five poor choices. But shouldn`t the last verb be "connects"??

E is wrong because it fails to have a verb in order to form an IC. B is best by starting with an introductory modifier and then the subject, "the Erie Canal", makes it clear that it is it which "connected X and Y"

I think Paul is right.The answer is B and only.
In E,the sentence doesn't make any sense.

Why 'B' ?? "Or" 12 feet deep does not make sense
Infact I could not agree with any of the options

why do you think "or" doesn't make sense?

other choices have the run-on-sentence problem.

In gmat, you choose the best or least wrong among the available. if you feel uneasy in finding the right one use POE, you will get B.

If needs, explain later.
