A new satellite sweeping over the poles at altitudes of up to 32,000 miles is called POLAR, giving scientists their best look yet at the magnetosphere, the region of space under the invisible influence of Earth’s magnetic field.

A. A new satellite sweeping over the poles at altitudes of up to 32,000 miles is called POLAR, giving scientists their best look yet at the magnetosphere, the region of space under the invisible influence of Earth’s magnetic field. --> giving scientists after comma makes the sentence run on. Hence, incorrect.

B. A new satellite called POLAR that is giving scientists their best look yet at the magnetosphere, the region of space under the invisible influence of Earth’s magnetic field, sweeping over the poles at altitudes of up to 32,000 miles. --> Missing Verb Error.

C. Scientists are getting their best look yet at the magnetosphere, the region of space under the invisible influence of Earth’s magnetic field, from a new satellite sweeping over the poles at altitudes of up to 32,000 miles called POLAR. --> Are we saying 32000 miles are called POLAR? Change in meaning and illogical meaning.

D. Sweeping over the poles at altitudes of up to 32,000 miles, a new satellite called POLAR is giving scientists their best look yet at the magnetosphere, the region of space under the invisible influence of Earth’s magnetic field.

E. Sweeping over the poles at altitudes of up to 32,000 miles, scientists’ best look yet at the magnetosphere, the region of space under the invisible influence of Earth’s magnetic field, is coming from a new satellite called POLAR. --> Scientists look is sweeping over the poles. Lol.

before we can do this problem fast, we need to practice realizing the grammatical roles of phrases in a sentence a long time. this process is done when we learn english. in the past, I did not practice this way . persons who practice this have good english and can beat gmat soon.

I am a bit confused to the word "their." How can "a new satellite" giving scientist "their" best look? I instinctively chose C when I first practiced this question...
