Hi aaba,

Another great question! Let's tackle this one problem at a time, and see if we can find the correct answer quickly!

After running through the answers quickly, it looks like their endings are the main difference between each one. So let's figure out which ones work, and which ones don't. Consider things like subject/verb agreement, proper verb tense, and logic.

A: providing them with the best physical therapists, and training them carefully, Olympic runners are achieving

This answer is INCORRECT because it doesn't make logical sense. In the beginning, the phrase "who manages to keep" suggests that the coaches are working in the present to help the Olympic runners set records in the future. Since this phrase says they are currently setting records, this doesn't really make sense.

B: providing them with the best physical therapists, and trained carefully, the Olympic runner achieves

This answer is INCORRECT because it doesn't agree in number with the first part of the sentence. Earlier, it refers to the runners by the plural pronoun "them," but later uses the singular "the Olympic runner."

C: providing with the best physical therapists, and training them carefully, Olympic runners are achieving

This answer is INCORRECT because it doesn't make logical sense. It suggests that coaches still need to help Olympic runners, but they're already achieving their goals?

D: providing with the best physical therapists, and trained carefully, the Olympic runners achieves

This answer is INCORRECT because it doesn't have the right subject/verb agreement. It uses the plural "runners" and the singular "achieves."

E: provided with the best physical therapists, and trained carefully, Olympic runners will achieve

This answer is CORRECT because it makes sense to use the future tense (coaches help runners now, they set more records in the future), and it uses proper subject/verb agreement.

I hope this helps!

Its still not clear to me why option A is wrong.I think the participle phrases are clearly modifying coaches..

Hey techiesam ,

This question is exactly similar to the one here.

You need to understand the sequencing of the events.

As per the meaning of the sentence, coach should first provide the training and then the Olympic runners should achieve the target. So, if you are talking about coaches providing training in present tense, the score should be achieved in the future.

This is what is wrong in option A and correct in option E.

Does that make sense?
