one more for E. 'originate' and 'perpetuate' need active voice rather than passive voice.

Do you mean this

OG210
Scientists have recently discovered what could be the largest and oldest living organism on Earth, a giant fungus that is an interwoven filigree of mushrooms and rootlike tentacles spawned by a single fertilized spore some 10,000 years ago and extending for more than 30 acres in the soil of a Michigan forest.

(A) extending
(B) extends
(C) extended
(D) it extended
(E) is extending

one is active voice and the other is passive voice.

(D) it is .... seems to be very clear.

(E) is wrong because 'perpetuating by' is not the correct usage. Rather it should be 'perpetuated by' and hence (D).

A,B and C are out because they dont fit into the 'present tense' context.

D) "...language variations originating from..." (active) and "...perpetuated by..." (passive) the 1st verb "orginate" needs to be a present participle and the 2nd verb "perpetuate" a past participle to show the active/passive funktion.

I will go with 'B'
Shouldn't there be an 'AND' before language variations.

Can someone, who has chosen "D", explain why he/she rejected "B".

IMO B) is out because "originate" and "perpetuate" would modifiy "variiations" but we need to modify "language variations". moreover i think that the "that" should be in front of "perpetuate" as well. but thats not the point. i think more imortant is the former.
