Harappa and Maya are examples of civilizations in which people experienced economic growth because of an abundance of natural resources, declined with the depletion of resources and never gained prominence again.

A) declined with the depletion of resources and never gained : experienced, declined and gained are parallel. This means people declined and gained, but it is actually the economies.
B) who declines in economy with the depletion of resources and who never gain : Who will refer to person, but actually the economies declined. Tense error ( declines & gain)
C) whose economies declined with the depletion of resources and never gained
D) and their economies declined with the depletion of resources and never gained
E) but whose economies declined with the depletion of resources and never gained

Not sure of C,D
IMO : E as it brings the contrast of economic growth and decline. But not sure of use of whose.
Need expert help.

A) declined with the depletion of resources and never gained - refers of people
B) who declines in economy with the depletion of resources and who never gain - who is incorrect and tense error.
C) whose economies declined with the depletion of resources and never gained - whose is correct but we need something which shows the contrast between abundance and declined of resources
D) and their economies declined with the depletion of resources and never gained - Same as C
E) but whose economies declined with the depletion of resources and never gained - Correct. captures the correct contrast.

Kindly correct me if my logic is wrong or I am missing something.

egmat: If you could please vet my response and address my query.

Harappa and Maya are examples of civilizations
=> in which people experienced economic growth
=> => because of an abundance of natural resources,
declined with the depletion of resources and never gained prominence again.


A) declined with the depletion of resources and never gained
Declined acts as a modifier instead of verb and hence is not parallel to "gained"

B) who declines in economy with the depletion of resources and who never gain
who cannot be used for civilizations.

C) whose economies declined with the depletion of resources and never gained
whose refer incorrectly to natural resources. A proper connector is needed

D) and their economies declined with the depletion of resources and never gained

E) but whose economies declined with the depletion of resources and never gained

I was stuck between the choices D and E. Why is D wrong? Is it just because of the need of a "contrast"?
