The phrase 'Although damaged with bone infection' should modify Big AI. So A and B out. In option E, we are not sure whether the phrase is modifying Paleontologists or Big AI.

A. Although damaged with bone infection, paleontologists were successful in excavating Big Al, a specimen of Allosaurus dinosaur from the late Jurassic period.

B. Although damaged with bone infection, paleontologists succeeded in excavating Big Al, a specimen of Allosaurus dinosaur from the late Jurassic period.

C. Although damaged with bone infection, Big Al, a specimen of Allosaurus dinosaur from the late Jurassic period, could be successfully excavated by paleontologists.

D. Although damaged with bone infection, Big Al, a specimen of Allosaurus dinosaur could be excavated by paleontologists from Jurassic period.

E. Paleontologists succeed in excavating Big Al, a specimen of Allosaurus dinosaur from the late Jurassic period, although damaged with bone infection.

OFFICIAL EXPLANATION

A. "Although damaged with bone infection" incorrectly modifies "paleontologists".

B. "Although damaged with bone infection" incorrectly modifies "paleontologists".

C. Correct. "Although damaged with bone infection" correctly modifies "Big Al"; This choice effectively expresses the intended meaning of the sentence.

D. Changes the meaning suggesting that the Paleontologists were from the Jurassic era.

E. "Although damaged with bone infection" comes in very late, leading to ambiguity on what was damaged with bone infection.
