The electronics company has unveiled what it claims to be the world's smallest network digital camcorder, the length of which is that of a handheld computer, and it weighs less than 11 ounces.

A) to be the world's smallest network digital camcorder, the length of which is that of a handheld computer, and it weighs

B) to be the smallest network digital camcorder in the world, which is as long as a handheld computer, weighing

C) is the smallest network digital camcorder in the world, which is as long as a handheld computer, and it weighs

D) is the world's smallest network digital camcorder, which is as long as a handheld computer and weighs

E) is the world's smallest network digital camcorder, the length of which is that of a handheld computer, weighing

Quite easy this one. BCD have a which with an incorrect antecedent so eliminated. E has an ambiguous weighing reference to a handheld computer. Only A is correct.

OA to follow.

I picked A. B & C are out because of incorrect modifier. "which" is referred to the noun immediately before it, and the modifier is modifying "world". E sounded like the handheld computer weighs less than 11 ounces. I didn't pick D because I feel that "claim to be" is the correct idiom.

How is "which" is D has incorrect antecedent? I think it clearly modifies the camcorder...

I see nothing problem with "which" in D, A should be problematic. The colored boldface souds awkawrd!

i think B has two problems 1 which incorrectly reffers to world insted of reffering to to digital camcoder and weighing also appears to be reffering to hand held computer..... so i think B cannot be the option

CDE cannot be correct as they have the wrong IDIOM so only option left is A which i think is correct
