### HideShow timer Statistics

41. In the final 100-metres men’s race, the county team impressed the audience with each of the members reducing several seconds off his own best
time
- each of the members reducing several seconds off his
- every one of the members reducing several seconds off their
- each of the members was reducing several seconds off their
- all the members, who had reduced several seconds off his
- each of the members, who shaved several seconds off his

Spoiler: :: OE
41. Official Answer (OA) – A
Doing a first-word split proves beneficial on this question. Some options start with ‘each’ and some with ‘all’; this immediately tells you to check for
subject-verb or pronoun agreement.
B and C go out because the plural pronoun ‘their’ does not agree with the singular subject ‘every one’ / ‘each’
D goes out because the singular pronoun ‘his’ does not agree with the plural subject ‘all’
Between A and E, E is missing a verb because of the usage of ‘who’; hence A is the best answer.

I got the answer correct, but have a query in the OE. Specifically

Between A and E, E is missing a verb because of the usage of ‘who’; hence A is the best answer.

What's this missing verb they're talking about?

Thanks!

A seems best
E is wrong because implied meaning is nonsensical
what impressed people was the fact that each member had reduced his own timing .E on the other hand seems to indicate that members impressed the people .
also given explanation (OE) ( E is missing a verb because of the usage of ‘who’) does not make any sense as verb is there in E
E says :In the final 100-metres men’s race, the county team impressed the audience with each of the members, who saved several seconds off his ....
the verb is in bold

I agree, I also don't understand what verb they are talking about! If the main verb is "impressed", we don't need to have verb following "the members", don't we?

Btw I find the structure "reduce several second off his own best time" awkward. Isn't it a correct use?

Many thanks!

reducing is modifying members. it's not a verb.
