Why is D wrong? OE please.


well first of all E is definitely a better answer than D .
the construction of E is some what like this ---> clause ending with noun ,appositive
D on the other hand has little inferior construction ----->clause ending with noun ,modifier ,modifier . normally such constructions are wrong

Aditya's explanation is right. My initial answer was D as well. Thought it would be something nice to share.

ANSWER Explanation: A incorrectly implies that Mitch was the highest salary. B has no clear reference for "it". In C, the construction "$550,000, being the..." is unidiomatic. The construction "annual pay...per year" in D is redundant. E is the best answer.

I don't see "annual pay...per year" in D. Please elaborate.

Probably D is only redundant. And yes there is the typing error "...per year" in the book.

+ 1 for E.

Clearly 'the highest salary in professional baseball at that time' must modify the salary. Hence, E is the best.
