sentence analysis:
SV pair : Jaguars have --- correct.
amongst all felids --- correct use, as it is among a group.

Use of compare with:
To compare with is mainly to point out differences between objects regarded as essentially of the same order. Here, Jaguars's weigh much more is compared with leopards

Jaguars, compared with leopards, prefer to hunt.... ---- Correct modifier "compared with leopards" for 'jaguars'.

Jaguars, prefer ---- correct SV pair.

I am having second thoughts for that 'and', but anyways it is the best choice among all.

Sentence talks about feature of jaguras-strongest bite and then compared with leopard - different characteristics

Strongest bite and comparison with leopards aRe separate clauses so "and" must be used with compared part

A Jaguars have the strongest bite amongst all felids, and compared with leopards, weigh much more, -- no problem as such.convey correct meaning

B Jaguars, which have the strongest bite amongst all felids, compared with leopards, they weigh much more --- jaguars is there ,they is not required so wrong

C Jaguars have the strongest bite amongst all felids, in comparison with leopards, and weigh much more, they --- characteristics comparison with leopards is there so placement of "and" is wrong. Construction is a,b,and c
And required in the end

D Jaguars having the strongest bite amongst all felids, compared with leopards, weigh much more, ---- need to have "and" with compared, also usage of having

E Jaguars, which have the strongest bite among all felids, compared with leopards, weigh much more, and --- no verb + "and" is required with compared
As there are two separate clauses

Marked E, Silly Mistake. Got the answer later.
Jaguars have the strongest bite amongst all felids, and compared with leopards,
1. weigh much more,
2. prefer to hunt larger prey that weigh around 300kilograms,
5. and have shorter, stockier limbs.

Can anyone throw light if there is any specific difference in the usage of Among/Amongst?

Hi mikemcgarry,

Sir how are you ?

Honestly i think D can be a valid answer.
D Jaguars having the strongest bite amongst all felids, compared with leopards, weigh much more,

If i remove noun phrase then the sentence would read as Jaguars, compared with leopards, weigh much more,. This sentence makes sense and i think there is no issue with verb-ing modifier as well.

I understand that A has two independent sentences joined by and that A is correct.
But how do i eliminate D

The reason why I eliminated A was that 2 independent clauses were separated by comma. I don't think we need a comma here. What do you say?

I might be wrong but D is separating the Jaguars in two categories : one which has the strongest bite and one which doesn't

Hi Prateek176,

Happy to help.

I am afraid that your reason to eliminate A is not correct.

and is a FANBOYS conjunction and connects two independent sentences.
The correct form of two independent clauses joined by and is as follows.

IC1, and IC2.

I picked D too. However, option A indeed is the best answer. I realized this once submitted the answer.
The problem with D is probably the comma before "compared"

D Jaguars having the strongest bite amongst all felids, compared with leopards, weigh much more,...

If we retain that first clause and add the following phrase, the sentence will be fixed:

Jaguars having the strongest bite amongst all felids can kill the prey with only one bite.

Hope it helps.

hi arvind910619

I completely missed that

My logic for eliminating D was that the sentence says "Jaguar having the strongest bite......". This is not the intended meaning. This says that there are a fraction of jaguars who actually have the strongest bite. Is my logic apt??

It's incorrect because of use of "having" instead of "have"

hey there Prateek176 i am not expert at all,

but did you try to read option D out loud ?

Jaguars HAVE the strongest bite amongst all felids, and compared with leopards, weigh much more, prefer to hunt larger prey that weigh around 300kilograms, are adept swimmers, and have shorter, stockier limbs.

VS

Jaguars HAVING the strongest bite amongst all felids, and compared with leopards, weigh much more, prefer to hunt larger prey that weigh around 300kilograms, are adept swimmers, and have shorter, stockier limbs.

HAVING doesnt make sense here since it is not a verb, and you need to look for a verb in present tense, WHY ? look at words marked in blue. parallelism

ALSO: HAVING is a participle. Participle is not a verb. Participles have three functions in sentences. They can be components of multipart verbs, or they can function as adjectives or nouns.

In B an C it is not clear what ‘they’ refers to.
‘having’ is not the correct verb, so D is gone.

As E consists of two independent clauses, there must be an ‘and’ between them.

A is the right option.
