The benefits of the new policies are far reaching, economic experts say, providing a powerful vehicle to chip away at poverty in other countries and expanding the earnings of immigrants in the United States.

A)far reaching, economic experts say, providing a powerful vehicle to chip away at poverty in other countries and expanding the earnings of immigrants in the United States.
Correct. "providing" and "expanding" modify "the benefits" correctly.

B)far reaching, economic experts say, as it is providing a powerful vehicle to chip away at poverty in other countries and expand the earnings of immigrants in the United States.
Wrong. "The benefits" is plural. Bad grammar structure.

C)far reaching, economic experts say, providing a powerful vehicle to chip away at poverty and expand the immigrants’ earnings in the United States.
Wrong. Not parallel.

D)far reaching, economic experts say, by providing a powerful vehicle to chip away at poverty in other countries while it expands the earnings of immigrants in the United States.
Wrong. Parallelism problem + "The benefits" is plural.

E)far reaching, economic experts say, in that they provide a powerful vehicle to chip away at poverty in other countries expanding the earnings of immigrants in the United States.[/quote]
Wrong. "They" refers to the benefits or experts? + Parallelism problem.

Hope it helps.

Though I picked the correct answer.

I have a doubt (may be because of over reading the same sentence).

Can we parallel chip and expand in option C?

Why can't we consider "The benefits of the new policies are far reaching, economic experts say, providing a powerful vehicle to" an initial non-parallel part?

To elaborate....

The benefits of the new policies are far reaching, economic experts say, providing a powerful vehicle to chip away at poverty in other countries

and

The benefits of the new policies are far reaching, economic experts say, providing a powerful vehicle to expand the immigrants’ earnings in the United States.

I know we can also eliminate C based on the usage of apostrophe "immigrants’ earnings" because "the earnings of immigrants in the United States" is more precise than "immigrants’ earnings in the United States"

please respond

I am confused. When we remove extra information from a sentence, shouldn`t we remove it with comma?
Here "economic experts say" is an extra information, and if we remove it from sentence with the commas associated, then the Verb+ing modifier (providing) has no comma left.
Realy need help, Please reply...
