I am going with E becaue we are talking about dwellins which is plural, and that boils it down to D or E.
"that are" indicates that the purpose of the roofs... will be told
I guess my explanation is not really that clear

I will go with A. I have ruled out E because of the tense mismatch: "Mojave lived " i.e. past tense and "arrowweed that are" i.e. present tense.

Hi Daniela

I could not understand your point. Can you explain more. I don't see why a plural (dwellings) can not be followed by "each".

Thx

Reason mention in the quote is one of the reasons for ruling out E and moreover just remove the "part in the COMMAS" and than read the sentence with E. "Lived..with" ......now does the sentence make sense NOPE.

So the best option is A here.
So what is the OA?

If there is a problem with tense here, (A) must be right. But I wonder it is supposed to be "and each a roof of poles and arrowweed" instead. Unless, the part "each a roof of poles and arrowweed" modifies "shades". But I don't understand its meaning.

Hello,

The OA is A.

Any ideal about why E is erroneous and why A is right ?

Thanks

In E, "that are" are somewhat unnecesary. even without the relative modifier, the sentence will make sense.

C is a trap. I think the usage "with each a roof ofxx" is okay but with each being is a trap. I fell for this one at first then realized that word "being"

A is my choice. this is another question in which we have to know the English usage. What is the source of these questions
