The people going for A, correct me if I am wrong but can you count the number of particles

Particles will go along the same way as money...it is not "the number of money" but "the amount of money"...so there it is but I am waiting for the OA

Money is uncountable , whereas particles are countable

@tinnie123, I do not think I would agree with you that Particles are countable...and especially in the context in which it is used in the sentence, but hey, I stand to be corrected..

Though I am late in answering this question, I will just say it was all about modifier and countable and non-countable things. It took 1min35sec.

Recently, some astronomers spotted a gap in the extended outer atmosphere of the Sun, a discovery suggesting that a gigantic number of particles escaped into space as geomagnetic storms that at times cause damage to the Earth’s satellites and power grids.

A. Sun, a discovery suggesting that a gigantic number of particles escaped

B. Sun, a discovery that suggested the escape of a gigantic amount of particles

C. Sun suggesting that a gigantic number of particles escaped

D. Sun that suggests a gigantic number of particles that escaped

E. Sun, a discovery suggesting a gigantic amount of particles escaping

Why A is not a run on error ?

Recently, some astronomers spotted a gap in the extended outer atmosphere of the Sun - Independent Clause

Although I agree A is the best ans & after elimination the only one but I was doubtful whether I am overlooking the run-on error . Kindly explain .

Freddie! Hi,

By definition, a run-on is a flaw of wrongful conjugation of two independent clauses by just a comma instead of the required period or semicolon or conjunction.

Here in choice A, while the first part is no doubt an IC, the second part ‘a discovery suggesting that a gigantic number of particles escaped’ is not an IC; it is just a modifier; hence A is not a run-on.

A it is. Modifier error & Appositives eliciting clear meaning.
