As per my understanding, ' developed by the Ministry of Agriculture ' is an essential middle modifier starting with a past participle and modifying the immediatly preceeding noun i.e. dance.

Check the link which I have shared above.

Choice C, very clearly changes the meaning of the original sentence. If you look at the original sentence then you will find that it talks about a structure in the form 'The Sri-NuanSri-Nuan dance and Teut-Teung dance...along with others such as The Farmer's Dance'. But choice C simply omits 'along with others' and becomes more specific by using 'The Farmer's Dance' directly.

By the way nothing wrong grammatically with C, its just the change of the meaning which strikes it out.

I hope that helped.

The main issue is that the subject should be plural to match the plural verb constitute. Only E has 1 and 2 dances, which is what would go with constitute. C has two subjects so that would technically work, but it has another problem that you've pointed out.

E cannot be the answer.

'The Sri-NuanSri-Nuan and Teut-Teung dances'


You need another THE in front of the Teut- teung to consider the plural wording dances.....

I dont understand. I doubt this question.

It is intended in the construction -

Consider the following the sentences -

Ram is stronger than I (correct) (here 'am' is intended)
Ram is stronger than I am (also correct)

In the option E the plural 'dances' clears the confusion that we are talking about two different dances.
Please correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks.

This example of sentence correction, more than grammar, relies on the principles of 'meaning'.
