1. I am afraid while calling "A" a fragment, you have conveniently left out the part", which permeates the bone". May I know the reason? If you leave out the subject from a clause, then it will only be a fragment


"Which" is a relative pronoun that acts as the subject of all those actions that water does? The relative clause is a subordinate clause with three verbs together called compound verbs.

There is a subject, then there is a legal compound verb structure, and taken together that is a licit clause.

2. While choosing E as the choice, you seem to have missed the basic point of what the adverbial clause
"E) Permeating the bone, washing away its organic components, and replacing them" is modifying.

The modifier erroneously modifies the bone and the action of fossilizing. Does the bone do all those activities or does water do the activities?

singh8891.

I have a small question to singh8891. If 'them' does not refer to the organic materials, could you please suggest an alternate for 'the minerals'?

In case you could not find another plural in the text to refer to 'them', how would you tackle this official question?
Sir
I acknowledge your point. The purpose is to find the best answer. Thanks for answering.

on the first look A seems to be correct but rejected on the same ground as by @singh8891.( them do not have antecedent)

but forget that best answer among 5 is the correct answer, even though best is doubtful.
