Hi saravalli,

I believe the answer here is E.

1) Obviouly wrong, has proved helpful doesn't sound right

2-4 include the word 'itself'. Clearly since the subject we are talking about is canon, we do not need to include itself.

5) Sounds right and doesn't include the word 'itself'

What's the OA?

B,C,D -- are out itself is wrong here.
itself = Cannon itself demonstrating.. wrong...
Cannon that shoots dead chickens demonstrating..

Between A, E.

A) cannon shooting dead chickens ..demonstrate
cannon shooting dead chickens -- leads to different meanings
--> "cannon" shooting dead chickens = "cannon that shoots dead chickens"
(or)
-- >cannon shooting "dead chikens"
A is little ambiogous.

E is better.
