When a ton of wheat was being moved from Buffalo to New York City before the opening of the Erie Canal in 1825, it took three weeks and cost $100, but when the canal was used, it took less than eight days and cost less than $6.

A. When a ton of wheat was being moved from Buffalo to New York City before the opening of the Erie Canal in 1825, it took three weeks and cost $100, but when the canal was used, it - No antecedent of "IT", use of WHEN is redundant as the time period is clearly mentioned, 1825

B. Moving a ton of wheat from Buffalo to New York City before the opening of the Erie Canal in 1825, it took three weeks and cost $100; using the canal, it - No antecedent of "IT"

C. Before the opening of the Erie Canal in 1825, moving a ton of wheat from Buffalo to New York City took three weeks and cost $100; on the canal the move - CORRECT

D. In 1825, before opening the Erie Canal, to move a ton of wheat took three weeks from Buffalo to New York City, which cost $100; moving it on the canal - "From Buffalo to New York City" is wrongly placed, and thus this placement distorts the meaning (Now, It means that X took 3 weeks from buffalo to New york). "opening the Erie Canal" should be "opening OF the Erie Canal". How can New york city cost $100?

E. To move a ton of wheat in 1825 from Buffalo to New York City took - Out-rightly incorrect

A. When a ton of wheat was being moved from Buffalo to New York City before the opening of the
Erie Canal in 1825, it took three weeks and cost $100, but when the canal was used, it ---- was being moved from buffalo, gives the implication that all the description related to a function being performed at a particular time; The actual intent is not a specific instance but a general observation, which entails a simple past tense

B. Moving a ton of wheat from Buffalo to New York City before the opening of the Erie Canal in
1825, it took three weeks and cost $100; using the canal, it ---- the pronoun- first ‘ it ‘ is redundant.

C. Before the opening of the Erie Canal in 1825, moving a ton of wheat from Buffalo to New York
City took three weeks and cost $100; on the canal the move --- the best

D. In 1825, before opening the Erie Canal, to move a ton of wheat took three weeks from Buffalo to
New York City, which cost $100; moving it on the canal --- the prepositional phrase in 1825, implies that the description is relevant to only 1825, not before.

E. To move a ton of wheat in 1825 from Buffalo to New York City took – The same problem as in D
