Dear souvonik2k,

I'm happy to respond. :-) The Brooklyn Bridge is my favorite bridge in the world.

This is a very easy SC question, somewhat cookbook and much more straightforward than the official questions. Basically, the different choices simply shuffle around modifiers.

(A) has no verb, so it commits the famous missing verb mistake. This is incorrect.

(B) the modifying phrase "1825 meters long and 26 meters wide" is very awkward where it is. This is incorrect

(C) no problems; a clear elegant solution

(D) misplaced modifier: implies that Brooklyn is "1825 meters long and 26 meters wide"

(E) misplaced modifier: implies that Brooklyn was "designed by John and Washington Roebling in 1883"

Only (C) could be the answer.

Here's a much higher quality SC practice question:
What the eye sees

Does all this make sense?
Mike :-)

how can it be (C), since in (C) there is a parallelism issue "and connects"

In C "is 1825 meters" is parallel to "and connects". But i don't understand why there is comma before "and"
