This concept is based on the understanding of Madagascar periwinkle.

As the sentence talks about some derivative (or substance) - it is logical that we cannot cultivate a substance.

Hence, logically "is cultivated" refers to "Madagascar periwinkle" - Hence - THe only option that gives us this choice is E

(A) A substance derived from the Madagascar periwinkle, which has proved useful in decreasing mortality among young leukemia patients,

(B) A derivative, which has proved useful in decreasing mortality among young leukemia patients, of the Madagascar periwinkle

(C) A Madagascar periwinkle derivative, which has proved useful in decreasing mortality among young leukemia patients

(D) The Madagascar periwinkle has a derivative which has proved useful in decreasing

(E) The Madagascar periwinkle, a derivative of which has proved useful in decreasing mortality among young leukemia patients,


Option A-Substance is not cultivated instead Periwinkle is cultivated

Option B -Derivative is not cultivated-statement b/w commas could be ignored.

Option C-Madagascar periwinkle derivative is not cultivated

Option D-Wrong construction

Option E-correct-Modifier between the commas correctly modifying Periwinkle, also if we ignore the statement between the comma, the sentence comes out to be Madagascar periwinkle is cultivated in china
