"While avoiding.........animal products" must be followed by vegan athlete. Modifier error is introduced by placing vegan diet after the 'while...' phrase. Hence B is wrong.

B and C both look okay to me. What is wrong with B?


B certainly sounds ok. Also, B is grammatically correct. At the same time there is a meaning issue.

B begins with "While avoiding experiencing the health issues attributable to consuming meat and animal products".

Something that follows that opening modifier has to "avoid experiencing ... health issues".

What follows the opening modifier and seems to be the target of the modifier is "a vegan diet".

So we have, basically, "While avoiding experiencing health issues, a vegan diet allows ..."

That a vegan diet would experience health issues or avoid experiencing health issues does not make sense.

Yes, "athletes", which could logically be modified by "While avoiding experiencing the health issues ..." does appear in the sentence. However, the placement of the opening modifier associates it with "a vegan diet". Hence the term, "misplaced modifier."

In A, ‘Avoiding experiencing…’ is referring to ‘the diets…’, instead of the athletes themselves- wrong
B, again implies that the diet is avoiding experiencing the health issues, instead of the athletes- wrong
In D, ‘Body building and sprinting’ refers to ‘a vegan diet’. This makes no sense- wrong
E is less flawed but in it ‘who’ seems to refer to the sports, when it should refer to the athletes.
C has no flaws and is the correct option
