Can someone, please tell the difference between option D & option E

the comma and semicolon at the start.
when u replace underlined portion with choice D, its a run on sentence because of comma, on the other hand choice E being an independent clause works fine with semicolon.



Is the comma / semicolon only difference between D and E ? Is centres of entertainment vs entertainment centre not a differentiating factor ?

Yes and No
There are bigger errors with the option D, because of the use of comma

More and more holidaymakers are choosing to fly to remote islands in search of the perfect beach; seeking sand, sun and palm trees, rather than centers of entertainment.

A. ; seeking sand, sun and palm trees, rather than centers of entertainment.
B. ; seeking sad, sun, palm trees and not entertainment.
C. , with sand, sun, palm trees and no entertainment.
D. , they seek sand, sun and palm trees, rather than entertainment centers.
E. ; they seek sand, sun and palm trees, rather than centers of entertainment.


Kindly break down each option and explain the problems associated with each.....also if somebody could point out the correct usage of a semicolon(;) and a colon(:) in a sentence, then it would be very helpful.....


The part after semicolon needs a pronoun to refer to holidaymakers so correct usage must include a pronoun.
Eliminate choices A, B and C
in option D construction of 'entertainment centers ' is not proper and a bit awkard and correct construction is ' centers of entertainment '
Correct Answer - E

so, the big error of this question is the comma and the meaning. Nothing special problem is here

IMO E.

Just a small doubt though, in option A if it was a comma instead of semi-colon will it make a better answer than E?
