IMO D:

POE:
A about the same as a millipede but it has only --- it?
B of about the same size as a millipede, but a centipede has only --- Wrong comparison
C about the same size as a millipede length, but only -- length vs length is correct, but body length vs total length is changing the meaning.
D about the same as that of a millipede, but only --- correct comparison.
E comparable to that of the millipede, having only --- wrong use of having.

aragonn can you please elaborate why having is wrong in Option D? Having is used in ans option D as a verb-ing modifier and It is modifying the preceding clause by making sense with the sub.

A about the same as a millipede but it has only (comparing body length and millipede)

B of about the same size as a millipede, but a centipede has only (same as A)

C about the same size as a millipede length, but only (same as B)

D about the same as that of a millipede, but only Correct

Happy to respond my friend. First let's see the detail usage and then understand the meaning here.

Quote:
Having is used to introduce a clause in which you mention an action which had already happened before another action began.
Ex - He arrived in India, having left Singapore on last Monday.

In this case there is no action, on top of that we can put one other action. Just noticed that there is one more thing wrong with E. You see first part is saying a positive statement and 2nd part changed the meaning of it. Something like 'but' or 'However' should be used.

Hope it helped.

Hi,

in option D - but is not followed by independent clause. So how this one is correct ?

Hi! The verb will be implied. For example:

He is smart but lazy.

This is equivalent to:

He is smart but (is) lazy.
