### HideShow timer Statistics

The increased popularity and availability of televisions has led to the decline of regional dialects, language
variations which originate from diverse ethnic and cultural heritages and perpetuated by geographic isolation.

A. which originate from diverse ethnic and cultural heritages and perpetuated
B. that originated from diverse ethnic and cultural heritages and perpetuated
C. originated from diverse ethnic and cultural heritages and perpetuated
D. originating from diverse ethnic and cultural heritages and perpetuated
E. originating from diverse ethnic and cultural heritages and perpetuating

Can someone answer why AC E is wrong ?
"originating" and "perpetuating" both seem to modify variations (which is what required here) and appear to be parallel. Why we need a verb -ed modifier here?

You want perpetuated because the meaning requires the passive. The variations are perpetuated by isolation. The -ing would be used in a situation where the variations were doing something (they're actually having something done to them).
