(E) Forced to cope with about half as much advertising revenue as they were receiving twenty years ago, across the country newspapers



(A) Many newspapers across the country, forced to cope with about half as much advertising revenue as they were receiving twenty years ago,

Correct

(B) Many newspapers across the country, forced to cope with about half the advertising revenue as they were receiving twenty years ago,

Correct idiom would be as much ... as ...

(C) Many newspapers across the country, forced to cope with about half as much as the advertising revenue they were receiving twenty years ago,

"half as much as the advertising revenue" is not correct. The correct way to say this is: "half as much advertising revenue as.."

(D) Many newspapers across the country have been forced to cope with about half as much advertising revenue as they were receiving twenty years ago, have frantically sought...

Here we would have a run on sentence. The second clause after "years ago," is incorrectly separated from the first clause by just a comma. We would need "and" for example, before the second clause to make the sentence correct

(E) Forced to cope with about half as much advertising revenue as they were receiving twenty years ago, across the country newspapers

The modifier is incorrectly modifying "across the country"


Pls correct me if i'm wrong
