chetan2u Hi Chetan I got confused by the presence of "having" without comma in the option D. Can you please elaborate about rules regarding use of such modifiers without comman?

In OA-D, shouldn't a comma precede 'having'?

Does the 'having' modifier modify the entire preceding clause?

Hi Gladiator59 Same query as above. Shouldn't there be a comma ? I read this like ----> different culture having something.
