IMO D.
Closely followed by C.Dated seems to modify camel rather than domesticating.

I vote for D as well
and C as close contender (due to another reason that 've seen "dated at" as correct idiom in another thread)

C it is for me.

MGMAT prefers verb over noun i.e. 'domesticating the camel' rather than 'the domestication of camel'

OA please

I'm going for D.
"Dated at" is the correct idiom (according to MGMAT SC anyway). But I think the issue with C is that the modifier "dated at ..." can refer to specifically just the camel. This could then read as the domesticating a really old camel.
In D the modifier refers to the entire clause.

A and B have the same modification error. E seems a bit awkward.

D is correct ans as thought by scholars correctly points to domestication rather than camel.

“The domesticated camel” and “was the key to the development” is not logical so

Choice A and B can be eliminated.

“Domesticating the camel” is not “dated by scholars” but has occurred

So Choice C and E can be eliminated

That leaves us with choice D.

What is OA ?



this is Good explanation
Thanku

E seems to be cross-over between C and D. D is much clearer than C even though C has correct idiom usage.

If you say 'dated', then you have to express it idiomatically as ‘dated at’. E falls into this trap by using ‘dated to’ have been, which is wrong. D dodges the pitfall, by not using ‘dated’ altogether.

D for me. The domestication of the camel, blah blah blah, was the key to the development of the spice trade in the ancient world.

Choice E is in passive voice. GMAT prefers Active over passive voice.
