(A) when arriving, tends to fall -says erratic at its arrival -which does not make sense

(B) when arriving, has a tendency of falling-same as A

(C) when it arrives, it tends in falling-'in falling' incorrectly modifying 'tends'

(D) when it arrives, tending to fall-tending is modifying arrival -wrong

(E) when it arrives, it tends to fall -correct choice

(A) when arriving, tends to fall --> "when arriving" should modify a noun/doer close to it, but the noun/doer is missing
(B) when arriving, has a tendency of falling --> same as A
(C) when it arrives, it tends in falling --> should be "tends to fall"
(D) when it arrives, tending to fall --> no parallel with previous sentence i.e. not even a sentence w/o main verb
(E) when it arrives, it tends to fall --> correct
