B

Idiom: "suggest that"
C changes the meaning.
In E, there are not two events in different points in the time line of the past to use past perfect.

My pick B
that needs to follow a reporting verb her suggest
Right usage of tense in B
dislodge happened before the moon formed

Expert's post
The correct answer is C because of the need to use that and the relative pronoun touch-rule. Only in C, the relative pronoun which refers correctly to moon.

D) the moon was formed out of part of the Earth, having perhaps been dislodged
having been dislodged again indicates that the moon was dislodged.


Hi fluke, thanks a lot for your explanation. Could you please explain why "having been ..." modifies moon? I want to learn the abstract concept you used to present your explanation. Thanks.

Some scientists suggest the moon was formed out of part of the Earth, having perhaps been dislodged by a meteor.

-ING form ALWAYS modifies the subject of the sentence touching it with COMMA unlike WHICH and other modifiers

Subject of "Some scientists suggest the moon was formed out of part of the Earth" - moon
so the sentence tells - Moon was dislodged by a meteor - does not make sense because moon did not even exist when meteor hit - So nonsense

the other errors: suggest that not there

Hi Abhicoolmax,
"Having + past participle" is special usage of participle and known as Perfect participle.
The perfect participle indicates completed action.

Here sentence mean that "When moon was formed out of part of Earth, the moon was already dislodged by meteor" which is wrong.

Giving kudos is a decent way to say "Thanks". If my post helps you please give me kudos.
All the best for your exam.
