Hi,

Point to note in ques 4, 'they' is not ambiguous. Logically, they can only refer to models. Plug in models and interiors in place of 'they' and read the whole sentence. Onlymodels makes sense.
The problem with option 'C' is use of that. The newest models that are so luxurious - The original sentence says that it is not models that are luxurious but the interiors. Hence 'E'

Thanks!

ed modifier "covered" demands noun which is covered with snow immediately after modifier. Here runway is the only eligible noun, which can be covered.

hi,

Please correct me where I am wrong

in option D-according is v-ing modifier so it should make sense with preceding clause which is runway..I dont think its correct

for me option C is correct.According to aviation officials is between commas and so we can skip it and Although covered in about 11 inches of snow make sense with sub of clause-runway?

Here "according to" is used in the meaning "as per".

According to experts, men are more foolish than women.

In this sentence "according to" refers to the whole clause "men are more foolish than women".

Similarly, the whole clause " Although covered in about 11 inches of snow, the runway was in acceptable condition during the emergency landing" is referred to by "according to officials".

The usage of "according to" is perhaps better considered idiomatic than a present participle modifier.
