What is " comma fueled" modifying in the ans D?

It cannot modify the "company" as verb Ed modifier cannot jump a verb.

Also in c, can't "that" refer to "total"?

Hey GMATNinja

I eliminated A, B, and C on the basis of them starting with in South Korea because later it also mentioned nation's ten... which I believe is mere repetition.

With those three eliminated, the choice was between D and E. D made perfect sense to me while E seemed wordier. So I chose D.

Am I doing it wrong?

In South Korea in the early 2000s, growth in the nation’s ten largest [#permalink]
Quote:
Option C. In South Korea, the nation’s ten largest companies experienced rapid asset growth in the early 2000s, fueled by their rapid expansion into new lines of business: they had a total of 592 subsidiaries in 2011, nearly twice that of 2002

Confused whether fueled modifies the 2000s or jumps over to modify rapid growth? GMATNinja- BillyZ generis
