each a roof is modifying shades.

D/E refer to dwellings.

Out of A/C, pick A.

This question has been discussed many times in the forum. but my doubts still remain abt it. This is how i take this:

A and B depict sahdes as roofs which is wrong. so A,B out
C also carries the same issue. also use of being is incorrect. so C out
In E, above issues are resolved but arroweed that are is wrong.
D is concise and best.

Any takers?

A) Hold it ----seems ok
B) are being is in present .... sentence is in past tense (lived)....Incorrect
c) with each being --- redundant / awkward
d) to be --- why talk about future
e) Present tense.....incorrect

IMO A

Hi mates,

IMO E

each a roof of poles and arrowweed
each a roof of poles and arrowweed that are being
with each being a roof of poles and arrowweed
with roofs of poles and arrowweed to be
with roofs of poles and arrowweed that are

A and B out, they are not linked with the previous sentence
C out: being
Between D and E, for me E looks better

OA and Source?

Thanks

What is supported by posts set in a rectangle? Roof.

Strucyurally, A is also correct. But, it distorts the meaning. If we consider "each a roof of poles and arrowweed supported by posts set in a rectangle" as an absolute phrase and modifying "shaed", then we encouter the following problems:

1. Sentence tells that shade is supported by posts. This does not look right.
2. In the absolute phrase, there should be "and" between "posts" and "set".
