to examine molars of prehuman ancestors and determining

And implies parellelims

to examine and determining ... cannot be parellel..

it is either .examining and determining

or

to examine AND to determine

(A) The application of a new method for analyzing the chemistry of tooth enamel allows scientists to examine molars of prehuman ancestors and determining
examine and determining - not parallel

(B) Through the application of a new method for analyzing the chemistry of tooth enamel, the molars of prehuman ancestors were examined by scientists who determined
scientists should be after comma

(C) When they applied a new method for analyzing the chemistry of tooth enamel, scientists examined molars of prehuman ancestors, determining
they shows ambiguity and is avoided in other answer choices

(D) Applying a new method for analyzing the chemistry of tooth enamel, the molars of prehuman ancestors have been examined by scientists, who determined
scientists should be after comma

(E) Applying a new method for analyzing the chemistry of tooth enamel, scientists have examined molars of prehuman ancestors and determined
scientists after comma, examined and determined is parallel - good

V-A-N rule
verbs preferred over Adjectives and adjectives preferred over nouns.Also, verbs preferred over nouns.

eg: it is easy to swim across small ponds
swimming across small ponds is easy.


so, here application of a new method can be replaced by applying a new method.

(D) Vs (E)
(D) Is incorrect.
"......the molars of prehuman ancestors have been examined by scientists, who determined..."takes the sentence into passive voice where we alrady have half of the previous part in active voice.
who is introduced unnecessarily.

(E) wins

The application of a new method for analyzing the chemistry of tooth enamel allows scientists to examine molars of prehuman ancestors and determining that their diets were more varied than had been supposed.

(A) The application of a new method for analyzing the chemistry of tooth enamel allows scientists to examine molars of prehuman ancestors and determining
analyzing and determining could be parallel but both of them talk about different things
(B) Through the application of a new method for analyzing the chemistry of tooth enamel, the molars of prehuman ancestors were examined by scientists who determined
Modifier error the modifier should modify Scientist and nothing else
(C) When they applied a new method for analyzing the chemistry of tooth enamel, scientists examined molars of prehuman ancestors, determining
Usage of when (timeline???) & they (who they ???)
(D) Applying a new method for analyzing the chemistry of tooth enamel, the molars of prehuman ancestors have been examined by scientists, who determined
Who was applying the new method ??? scientists were not properly modified
(E) Applying a new method for analyzing the chemistry of tooth enamel, scientists have examined molars of prehuman ancestors and determined

I think that is more than sufficient to reach out to conclusion that the right answer is E

+1 for E. In A, the subject is "application" and this does not really make sense. It is not the application but the methods that are allowing the scientists to study.

Hi egmat (Shraddha).. Though arriving at E was obvious based on the modifier and parallelism, I always get confused with the pronoun use.. Now in this case, how to ascertain the usage of their? Has it be always logical? Are there any rules?
