THank you very much!

VodkaHelps , your username is hilarious.

Sorry for the delayed reply.

Your question would be easier to answer if it were more specific. :)

Posts in the thread discuss option E.
What about option E is unclear? Why?
Why is option E better than option D?


ha ha, my gmat journey is getting too long and I feel like only Vodka can help, lol.

Okay, so I think I will rephrase my question. Are the last two modifier phrases modifying the same noun?

Records from the latter half of the 19th century show that in 1876 in Westbridge County there were 1,200 landowners, nearly 12 percent of the state landowner population, three times as many as 1852.

My initial confusion was thinking that the last modifier was modifying the 12 percent, and therefore, I believed the answer E might be the most appropriate.

If indeed we have a form noun + 1st Modifier + 2nd Modifier, then this must be quite a rare instance.

A and B – Refer to the year itself rather than the number of landowners recorded in it.
C – not clear on what ‘it’ refers to
D- correct
E – an adverb (thrice) is modifying a noun (the number)

D is the best answer.
