A. raising to 9 the number of states that supported the document and making it - Illogical and 'it' is ambiguous.

B. becoming the 9th state to support the document and making the Constitution - Correct.

C. which raised to 9 the number of states supporting the document and making it - Illogical. Appears as though the constitution did the job.

D. which raised up to 9 the number of states that supported the document and made the Constitution - Same error as in C.

E. becoming the 9th state supporting the document and making it - 'it' is ambiguous.

Hi expert,

I did not find any choice correct. "making" should make sense with the subject.In all chocies, it seems as if New Hampshire state legislature made the constitution the law of the land. However,this is not the case. New Hampshire state legislature just voted in support to ratify the constitution, it did mot make the law.

Correct me if I misunderstood the meaning. Thanks

B is alright - the New Hampshire state legislature became the 9th state and made the Constitution the law.

"Making X Y" does not mean "making Y". "I made him my best friend" does not mean "I made my best friend".

Hi Sayantanc2k,

As per my understanding there is a difference between "New Hampshire state legislature" and "New Hampshire" which is actually a state. Is is OK to ignore this difference in the exam?
