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 Hudson River at Albany to the Great Lakes at Buffalo, providing the port of New York City with a direct water link to the heartland of the North American continent.
(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 (B) Seldom more than 40 feet wide or 12 feet deep but running 363 miles across the rugged wilderness of upstate New York, the Erie Canal connected (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 (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 (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
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
Go for E, since the sentence after the comma clearly refers to the Erie Canal. There is also parallelism with the gerungs (ing) - running / connecting / providing
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
Go for E, since the sentence after the comma clearly refers to the Erie Canal. There is also parallelism with the gerungs (ing) - running / connecting / providing
If you select E, where is your verb ?

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
Wrong modifier
B.Seldom more than 40 feet wide or 12 feet deep but running 363 miles across the rugged wilderness of upstate New York, the Erie Canal connected
Modifier placed correctly. This modifies Erie Canal
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
'It' has no reference
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
here which refers to New York and it certainly didn't connect river to lake.
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
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
B.Seldom more than 40 feet wide or 12 feet deep but running 363 miles across the rugged wilderness of upstate New York, the Erie Canal connected
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 - STRANGE
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
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

My answer is B
but a question ?
Seldom more than 40 feet wide [u][b]or[/b][/u] 12 feet deep but running 363 miles across the rugged wilderness of upstate New York, the Erie Canal connected
y do we have OR between 40 feet wide and 12 feet deep . Should be ABD
My answer is B but a question ? Seldom more than 40 feet wide or 12 feet deep but running 363 miles across the rugged wilderness of upstate New York, the Erie Canal connected

In this SC the "and" "or" conditions are irrelevant. We are looking for a choice which is gramatically correct.
C and E can be eliminated right away because of (due to?) the word Connecting.
D is misplaced modifier.
Between A and B, A has misplaced pronoun "IT"
Answer is B according to me.
A) gives run on sentences,' Seldom more ...., but it ....., the Erie Canal connected.... B) corrects the problem and is the best ans avail C) same as A too many run on sentences D) which is misplaced E) same as A too many run on sentences _________________
Modifier, co ordinating conjunction + main clause, subject & main clause,participial modifier. I think option A conveys the meaning correctly and it is not a run on sentence.
I think E since it maintains the parallelism between the verbs running /connecting/providing and also clears up the case for matching the pronoun with the antecedant which is missing in the other choices
this question is from OG, but there is an editing error in it, option B should be (40 feet wide AND 12 feet deep) if you look at the answer explanation you'll see B written with AND. _________________
