+1 for B

Split 1:
Jewish immigrants from Poland is modifying Eli and Rivka Schwartz. Hence we need them after comma. Eliminate A,C and D

Between B and E, Opened is modifying Schwartz’s Deli. Hence, B is our winner

(E) Eli and Rivka Schwartz opened after unsuccessfully attempting to find office work Schwartz’s Deli in 1843


+1 for B, Jewish immigrants from Poland should be placed as close to Eli and Rivka Schwartz, or else we get a modifier issue.

Eliminate A,C,D.
Between B and E, B is the correct answer
In E,
Quote:
Eli and Rivka Schwartz opened after unsuccessfully attempting to find office work Schwartz’s Deli in 1843

After opened, we should have had the name of the restaurant. This is rectified in B.

+1 for B

If Option E is modified as
Eli and Rivka Schwartz opened, after unsuccessfully attempting to find office work ,Schwartz’s Deli in 1843
will it be the correct answer?

Jewish immigrants from Poland, Schwartz’s Deli was opened by Eli and Rivka Schwartz in 1843 after unsuccessfully attempting to find office work.

Jewish immigrants from Poland---Immigrants should refer to people. Here its Eli and Rivka.

A quick scan through the options will help us eliminate all the options except B and E but in E Eli an Rivka opened what?

Hence B is the right answer according to me.

(A) Schwartz’s Deli was opened by Eli and Rivka Schwartz in 1843 after unsuccessfully attempting to find office work

(B) Eli and Rivka Schwartz opened Schwartz’s Deli in 1843, after unsuccessfully attempting to find office work

(C) after unsuccessfully attempting to find office work, Schwartz’s Deli was opened by Eli and Rivka Schwartz in 1843

(D) Schwartz’s Deli was opened in 1843 by Eli and Rivka Schwartz after unsuccessfully attempting to find office work

(E) Eli and Rivka Schwartz opened after unsuccessfully attempting to find office work Schwartz’s Deli in 1843

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



Once again, this question involves a dangling modifier. The first question you should ask yourself is: who are the immigrants? The answer should come after the comma. Only choices B and E are possible. Choice E has an incorrect order of words. ‘Opened’ is too far from ‘Schwartz’s deli’. Choice B is the correct answer.
