An international team of astronomers working at telescopes in the Canary Islands and Spain has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres estimated to have 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter, the solar system’s largest planet.

(A) astronomers working at telescopes in the Canary Islands and Spain has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres estimated to have 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter Correct

(B) astronomers working at telescopes in the Canary Islands and Spain has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres estimated to be 5 to 15 times Jupiter’s mass missing working verb - should be is working

(C) astronomers is working at telescopes in the Canary Islands and Spain, having detected at least 18 huge gas spheres that are estimated at 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter having detected sounds wrong, estimated at is unidiomatic

(D) astronomers, working at telescopes in the Canary Islands and Spain, and has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres estimated at 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter Missing working verb - should be is working

(E) astronomers, working at telescopes in the Canary Islands and Spain, has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres they have estimated to be 5 to 15 times Jupiter’s mass Possessive noun -Jupiter's mass is being followed by modifier of Jupiter

IMO answer is A.

A is cotrrect.
A. gas spheres have mass x times the mass of jupiter - correct
B. gas spheres be 5 times mass of jupites suggests that gas speres are a mass
CDE - change the meaning of the sentence by considering two events as separate

here "the solar system’s largest planet" points to "Jupiter" not it's mass so right away eliminate B and E

(A) astronomers working at telescopes in the Canary Islands and Spain has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres estimated to have 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter
-- Correct (better than other choices)

(C) astronomers is working at telescopes in the Canary Islands and Spain, having detected at least 18 huge gas spheres that are estimated at 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter
-- "working at telescopes in the Canary Islands and Spain" should be modifier modifying astronomers but "is working" changes into verb and distorts meaning

(D) astronomers, working at telescopes in the Canary Islands and Spain, and has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres estimated at 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter
-- this makes first part of sentence without verb - run on sentence.

An international team of astronomers working at telescopes in the Canary islands and Spain has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres estimated to have 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter, the solar system's largest planet.

A. Correct.

B. astronomers working at telescopes in the Canary islands and Spain has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres estimated to be 5 to 15 times Jupiter's mass
Wrong comparison: gas spheres vs the mass.

C. astronomers is working at telescopes in the Canary islands and Spain, having detected at least 18 huge gas spheres that are estimated at 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter
Wrong. "has detected" should be the main verb, not modifier.

D. astronomers, working at telescopes in the Canary islands and Spain, and has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres estimated at 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter
Wrong. Not parallel.

E. astronomers, working at telescopes in the Canary islands and Spain, has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres they have estimated to be 5 to 15 times Jupiter's mass[/quote]
Wrong. "they" is incorrect.

The phrase after the underlined portion " the solar system’s largest planet" should modify a planet. Hence option B & E are ruled out.

An international team of astronomers working at telescopes in the Canary Islands and Spain has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres estimated to have 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter, the solar system’s largest planet.

A.) astronomers working at telescopes in the Canary Islands and Spain has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres estimated to have 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter
B.) astronomers working at telescopes in the Canary Islands and Spain has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres estimated to be 5 to 15 times Jupiter’s mass - modifier issue
C.) astronomers is working at telescopes in the Canary Islands and Spain, having detected at least 18 huge gas sphere that are estimated at 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter - Subject - Verb agreement issue - "astronomers" plural, "is" singular
D.) astronomers, working at telescopes in the Canary Islands and Spain, and has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres estimated at 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter -parallelism issue and no complete clause available - "astronomers , xxxxx--modifier--xx, and has detected at least....
E.) astronomers, working at telescopes in the Canary Islands and Spain, has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres they have estimated to be 5 to 15 times Jupiter’s mass - modifier issue

Hence option A is the correct one

Hello Shree9975

Here is question #17 from OG13
"Sunspots, vortices of gas associated with strong electromagnetic activity, are visible as dark spots on the surface of the Sun but have never been sighted on the Sun's poles or equator."
So according to GMAC we can apply possessive to not living being.

In this question Jupiter's mass is wrong because further we have modifier of mass: the solar system's largest planet and this is nonsensical.

A.

B. astronomers working at telescopes in the Canary islands and Spain has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres estimated to be 5 to 15 times Jupiter's mass

C. astronomers is working at telescopes in the Canary islands and Spain, having detected at least 18 huge gas spheres that are estimated at 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter

D. astronomers, working at telescopes in the Canary islands and Spain, and has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres estimated at 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter

E. astronomers, working at telescopes in the Canary islands and Spain, has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres they have estimated to be 5 to 15 times Jupiter's mass


I will go with A . reason- the last part of sentence is "the solar system's largest planet." so before that it should be Jupiter and not mass. Leaving A, C and D. In C, we have "having" doesnt make sense. in D we have " astronomers, working at telescopes in the Canary islands and Spain, and has detected at least " the comma before "and" in GMAT means all these are in sequence. example- He is fat, ugly ,and bald . So eliminate D. A is the answer

(A) astronomers working at telescopes in the Canary Islands and Spain has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres estimated to have 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter --- ‘estimated to have’ is idiomatic . The correct choice

(B) astronomers working at telescopes in the Canary Islands and Spain has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres estimated to be 5 to 15 times Jupiter’s mass---- the solar system’s largest planet wrongly modifies the mass]


(C) astronomers is working at telescopes in the Canary Islands and Spain, having detected at least 18 huge gas spheres that are estimated at 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter—estimated at is unidiomatic

The problem with B is that it compares the Gas Spheres to Jupiter's Mass: "spheres estimated to be 5 to 15 times Jupiter's mass". You cannot compare an object such as a Gas Sphere to something abstract such as mass. You can only compare mass with mass.

A correctly compares the mass of the spheres to the mass of Jupiter: "spheres estimated to have 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter"

An international team of astronomers working at telescopes in the Canary islands and Spain has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres estimated to have 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter, the solar system's largest planet.

ANSWER IS A
Three very easy decision points here
1) Idiom :- estimated at is wrong ; estimated to /to be is correct
2) Subject Verb agreement :- "Team" is singular therefore singular verb should be used.
3) Modifier - "the solar system's largest planet" should modify JUPITER and not Jupiter's mass because Jupiter's mass cannot be a planet.

A. astronomers working at telescopes in the Canary islands and Spain has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres estimated to have 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter, the solar system's largest planet.
CORRECT

B. astronomers working at telescopes in the Canary islands and Spain has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres estimated to be 5 to 15 times Jupiter's mass
INCORRECT:- jupiter's mass cannot be the largest planet ; Jupiter is the largest planet.

C. astronomers is working at telescopes in the Canary islands and Spain, having detected at least 18 huge gas spheres that are estimated at 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter
WRONG:- having is incorrect tense. Estimated at is wrong idiom

D. astronomers, working at telescopes in the Canary islands and Spain, and has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres estimated at 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter
WRONG:- Estimated at is wrong idiom

E. astronomers, working at telescopes in the Canary islands and Spain, has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres they have estimated to be 5 to 15 times Jupiter's mass
INCORRECT:- Team is singular and the subject of the sentence. therefore "they" is wrong pronoun and is used incorrectly "have" is incorrect; Jupiter's mass is incorrect because mass cannot the biggest planet.
