Hi Guys,

I have always had a difficulty to figure out whether VERB-ED WORD is a VERB or MODIFIER .

Below is the example:
“The greatest road system built in the Americas prior to the arrival of Christopher Columbus was the Incan highway, which, over 2,500 miles long and extending from northern Ecuador through Peru to southern Chile.

“(A) Columbus was the Incan highway, which, over 2,500 miles long and extending

“(B) Columbus was the Incan highway, over 2,500 miles in length, and extended

“(C) Columbus, the Incan highway, which was over 2,500 miles in length and extended

“(D) Columbus, the Incan highway, being over 2,500 miles in length, was extended

In (B) (C) and (D) is *extended" a VERB or a MODIFIER.

HOW to identify if it is a VERB or a MODIFIER?
