a. Although acquired through more expensive special contracts, international T20 match players have the ability to score runs more rapidly than domestic cricketers do

b. Although acquired through more expensive special contracts, international T20 match players have the rapid ability to score more runs than domestic cricketers do --> Rapid ability changes the meaning. Modifier Issue.

c. Acquired through more expensive special contracts, international T20 match players have the rapid ability to score more runs than domestic cricketers --> Same as B

d. International T20 match players, although acquired through more expensive special contracts, have the rapid ability to score more runs than domestic cricketers --> Score more runs than score more cricketer. lol. Incorrect comparison.

e. Having the ability to score runs more rapidly than domestic cricketers, international T20 match players are acquired through more expensive special contracts --> Usage of 'having' is incorrect.

Hi jokschmer ,

I am happy to help.

The two things in || are

1. have the ability to score
2. are well worth the price.

Note that you got confused with the conclusion marker word "hence". It s okay to use such markers. Hence, A is correct.

Does that make sense?
