+1 for D

Split 1:
Pronoun error.
Noun: Komodo dragon
Pronoun: their/its
Their is wrong. Hence eliminate A, C, E

Between B and D, B has parallelism issue - 'grows and it runs' is not parallel. Eliminate B

Hence, D - Corrects pronoun error and uses correct parallelism.

B) the Komodo dragon dominates its habitat, grows to a length of up to 10 feet, and it runs swiftly enough

C) Komodo dragons dominate their habitat and grow to a length of up to 10 feet, and with such swift running

E) Komodo dragons dominate their habitat and grow to a length of up to 10 feet, they run swiftly enough


IMO D.

A - dominate and grow while running?
B - 'it' disturbs the parallelism
C - and with such swift... is a dependent clause and has been incorrectly combined using ',' and 'and'
E - They run... is a independent cause, and has been incorrectly combined using only a ','

Please correct me if my understanding is incorrect.

I think the answer should be B, s it uses correct parallelism by using dominates, grows, and runs. Please correct me if i am wrong.

A, C, and E can be eliminated from the pronoun "its"

B has the pronoun issue and changed intended meaning, and D uses "so that" correctly.

D must be the answer

I feel the need to clear something up as there are multiple posts giving the same error.

The subject/pronoun agreement in option (A.) is correct. The noun is the plural, 'dragons', not the singular, 'dragon'. Therefore, the pronoun 'their' is correct. I feel that answer choice (A.) is incorrect for an entirely different reason - the ending, "...running swiftly enough...."

A,C,E can be eliminated
D seems to wrongly modify habitat
B seems parallel and correct

What about "it" in the part that is not underlined?
