I pick C, because it resolves the run-on sentence problem. Independent clause + comma + Noun ("a fact") + Noun modifier ("that...")
B is wrong, since "which" incorrectly modifies the closest noun "move" and distorts meaning.
D and E also conveys unintended meaning.

B) London is a city on move, which makes its airport one of the busiest in the world. hich has nothing preceding it INCORRECT
C) London is a city on move, a fact that makes its airport one of the busiest in the world. CORRECT
D) Being a city on the move, London has made its airport one of the busiest in the world. Illogical. London doesnt make the airport busy, the condition that london is on the move makes it busy INCORRECT
E) London , a city on move, makes its airport one of the busiest in the world. same as D, INCORRECT


"this" or "these" are pronouns, so you have to put what are you refering to (i.e. a noun) right after them.

B) London is a city on THE move, which makes its airport one of the busiest in the world.
C) London is a city on THE move, a fact that makes its airport one of the busiest in the world.
D) Being a city on the move, London has made its airport one of the busiest in the world.
E) London, a city on THE move, makes its airport one of the busiest in the world.



Please fix this question. Without the proper article THE it makes little sense. In fact, there would be NO correct answer.

the fact that London is a city on move made its airport one of the busiest in the world.
London cannot make its airport the busiest in the world. D and E are thus eliminated.
A is incorrect, because it is a run-on sentence. 2 independent clauses are connected only with a comma.
in B - Which is used correctly if is preceded by a noun, but there is no noun before the comma.
C is the best answer. We have an independent clause-comma-noun+noun modifier.

+ agree with XF

I agree with you, London is a city, or a thing; it cannot itself makes its airport the busiest place.

Is this an OG question?

Isn'it it too colloquial that "a fact that makes its airport one of the busiest in the world." modifies "London is a city on move"?

It's (C). Every other choice has modification error.
