Re: Peromyscus maniculatus more commonly known as the deer mouse [#permalink]
Correct option E

Sentence exam on :
- Parallelism
- conjuction

Original sentence:
Peromyscus maniculatus, more commonly known as the deer mouse,
- is a small and versatile rodent that can thrive in virtually any environment that
- is the most populous mammal inhabiting the North American continent.

Flaw:
- That wrongly modify environment
- inhabiting is present participle, not a verb, we need verb "inhabit"

B) environment, it is the most populous mammal to inhabit
Flaw : pronoun error by usage "It" creates ambiguity

C) environment, which is the most populous mammal to inhabit
Flaw: which wrongly modify nearest noun Environment

D) environment, it is the most populous mammal inhabiting
Flaw: pronoun It error and wrong usage of inhabiting as present participle

E) Correct Option
Peromyscus maniculatus, more commonly known as the deer mouse,
- is a small and versatile rodent that can thrive in virtually any environment and
- [b]is
the most populous mammal to inhabit[/b] the North American continent

Properly connect two verb "is" and "and" conjuction, with correct usage of inhabit verb, makes option E correct.
