- NK cultivates rice does not constitute the agricultural land

Quote:
(B) North Korea, eighty percent of which is not suitable for growing crops, cultivating staples such as rice in valleys and coastal plains that contain alluvial soil and constituting the bulk of its agricultural land
- A fragment sentence - No Verb

Quote:
(C) eighty percent of North Korea is not suitable when growing staple crops such as rice, which is cultivated in valleys and coastal plains that contain alluvial soil and constitutes the bulk of its agricultural land
rice do not constitute the agricultural land. Additionally an incorrect usage of when indicating 80% is not suitable only when growing rice

Quote:
(D) eighty percent of which is not suitable for crop growth, which alluvial soil makes possible, North Korea cultivates staples such as rice in valleys and coastal plains, such areas constituting the bulk of its agricultural land
Modifier + Modifier + IC, Noun + Noun modifier -> Each modifier modifying the last element (touching noun) correctly. North Korea becomes the Subject of the IC correctly as well. such areas (Noun - plains and valleys) + consituting the agricultural land (participle modifying such areas)

Quote:
(E) the valleys and coastal plains of North Korea constitute the bulk of its agricultural land, where alluvial soil makes possible the cultivation of staples such as rice, though eighty percent of it is not suitable for crop growth
- Mountainous country has to be North Korea not the plains of NK
