Hello mate..

IMO,ders lots of ambiguity in main sentence,it says

tranmission of goods by merchant..means transmission is carried out by the merchant..

in other sentences however, they mean transmission of merchants goods...A being the main sentence,every option must provide the intended meaning.....

Dts y m confused....guys,could anyone elaborate?

WHAT IF EVERYONE STARTS WRITING COMMENTS IN CAPITAL. ITS A CONTAGIOUS DISEASE SPREADS FROM PERSON TO PERSON, AND EVEN I AM WRITING IN CAPITAL.

Its really difficult to read or comprehend sentences written in capital as comfortably as those in lowercase.

Further asking for kudos at CAPITAL-GUN-POINT doesn't make sense.

text in upper case is significantly more difficult to read than lower and mixed case text.
If you type in all caps because you find it faster and more convenient, consider using lower case only. You will annoy some people, of course, but all in all all lower case seems more widely accepted than all caps.

Literal meaning of Annoy : make (someone) a little angry; irritate

I hope you got message.

Thanks.

In medieval times, Libya was the principal corridor for the transmission of goods by merchants between Europe and Africa.

a) for the transmission of goods by merchants between
b) in which the transmission of merchants' goods took place among
c) where the transmission of merchants' goods occurred between
d) which was transmitting merchants' goods among
e) through which merchants' goods were transmitted between

a) wrong because --- Goods by merchants wordy
b) among is wrong- between is correct as it tells about two regions-Europe and Africa
c) where-wrong because it modifies Libya which is a noun and it is far away
d)again wrong modifier and among is a wrong usage
e)best of the options through which is a correct modifier and usage of between is correct

among is used for more than two, here we have two only ( Europe and Africa). so, eliminate (b) and (d) options.
for option (a) and (c) instead of transmitted, transmission is used. because it is past

This question remains a dichotomy. I dont see why A is considered in any way to be understood as corridor passes the merchant goods. Its clearly mentioned that transmission happens by merchants. However is the use of IDIOM "for", which means that corridor is transmitting goods is now superseding the second part of the underlined sentence.
I would really urge a solid verbal perspective from the experts!
Thanks

Hi...

If I have to eliminate Choice A, it would be for wrong placement of PREPOSITIONAL phrase " Between Europe and Africa"

This should be placed next to the noun it modifies and that is GOODS.
In A, it wrongly conveys that merchants were between Europe and Africa.
