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.

I have same question for option D-Is comma not necessary before having?Right now it seems to modify culture rather than the entire clause.
Also for option D,The error is only the presence of either..or..or there is parallelism error as well?
'having grown up in..'(verb-ing modifier) and 'immersed oneself in..'(v-ed modifier) seems parallel.
