As hurricane season reached full force, many beach-dwellers along the southeast coast temporarily left to stay with friends and relatives whose homes were located farther inland.

A) whose homes were located farther inland
B) where there were homes that were located farther inland
C) where they had homes located farther inland
D) with homes located farther inland
E) having homes located farther inland

Answer A is clear and precise to express beach dweller left the coast to live with friends and relatives (compound noun) whose homes were located farther inland.

B) where can not modify friends and relative
C) same as in B
D) with seems as if beach dwellers left with homes
E) having homes seem to modify only relatives and hence does not clearly express the meaning than it is expressed in A

Is someone able to explain in more detail the use of "With"?
I always get confused whether it is appropriate the use that word.
A proper explanation will receive Kudos
Thank you!

With is a preposition used in the following cases and many more :-

i) To provide the position of the thing eg. he left a courier with the neighbor next door

ii) more or less in line with 'along with' eg. I went on a holiday with my wife

iii) To provide more description - The Anasazi settlements at Chaco Canyon were built on a spectacular scale, with more than 75 carefully engineered structures, of up to 600 rooms each, connected by a complex regional system of roads

OFFICIAL EXPLANATION

When we read through the sentence as written, it sounds good. We might check for some of the errors that we often overlook, but this one's pretty straightforward. When we check out our answer choices, we see that they all connect "friends and relatives" with "homes" in different ways, but they are all less concise and clear than the original, Choice (A). We'll keep the sentence as it is.

The correct answer is Choice (A).

Learnings & Insights

• Relative pronoun modifier should be placed close to the noun that it modifies
• 'Whose' Can modify both people and things
