"one of the proudest of family legends"-- what is this phrase after the "comma" modifying the sentence.

"E" is a run on sentence as jpv said.

(A) Remembered almost as an epic among Americaâ€™s 12,000 Bosnian Muslims is the digging of Chicagoâ€™s subway tunnels in the early 1900â€™s, one of the proudest of family legends.
"one of the proudest of family legends" seems to modify tunnels.

(B) Almost an epic among Americaâ€™s 12,000 Bosnian Muslims is the digging in the 1900â€™s of Chicagoâ€™s subway tunnels, one of the proudest family legends.
"one of the proudest of family legends" seems to modify tunnels.

(C) Digging Chicagoâ€™s subway tunnels in the early 1900â€™s, Americaâ€™s 12,000 Bosnian Muslims remember it almost as an epic and it is one of the proudest family
Sounds like 12000 Muslims are still digging.

(D) Americaâ€™s 12,000 Bosnian Muslims remember almost as an epic the digging of Chicagoâ€™s subway tunnels in the early 1900â€™s, one of the proudest of family legends.
"one of the proudest of family legends" seems to modify tunnels.

(E) One of the proudest of family legends, remembered almost as an epic among, Americaâ€™s 12,000 Bosnian Muslims, is the digging of Chicagoâ€™s subway tunnels in the early 1900â€™s.
This one would be correct if there wasn't a comma between "among" and "America's 12000...".

doesnt the phrase "One of the proudest of family legends" requires the "subject" to which it is modifying to follow just after it.
for example
One of the proudest of family legends, the digging of-----

again,IMO the form as in E would have been correct if it were sth like this

One of the proudest of family legends AND remembered almost as an epic among America’s 12,000 Bosnian Muslims, is the digging of------ (removed the "comma" between "among" and "america's"

again two modifiers placed back to back with a "comma" inserted between them and with the subject following them is what i consider run on sentence. for example
entering in the house, drinking a glass of millk, i went upstairs to my study room.

IMO this is a run on sentence.

Agree.. (E) can be correct only if there is no comma.

(A) Remembered almost as an epic among Americaâ€™s 12,000 Bosnian Muslims is the digging of Chicagoâ€™s subway tunnels in the early 1900â€™s, one of the proudest of family legends.
- 'remembered ... by' should be the correct idiom. A is out.

(B) Almost an epic among Americaâ€™s 12,000 Bosnian Muslims is the digging in the 1900â€™s of Chicagoâ€™s subway tunnels, one of the proudest family legends.
- modify wrong noun

(C) Digging Chicagoâ€™s subway tunnels in the early 1900â€™s, Americaâ€™s 12,000 Bosnian Muslims remember it almost as an epic and it is one of the proudest family
-pronoun 'it' has no clear referent. C is out.

(D) Americaâ€™s 12,000 Bosnian Muslims remember almost as an epic the digging of Chicagoâ€™s subway tunnels in the early 1900â€™s, one of the proudest of family legends.
- modify wrong noun

(E) One of the proudest of family legends, remembered almost as an epic among, Americaâ€™s 12,000 Bosnian Muslims, is the digging of Chicagoâ€™s subway tunnels in the early 1900â€™s.
- sentences seems fragmented with America's 12,00 Bosnian muslims as a stand-alone phrase (seperated out by commas).

E seesm the best among 5 bad choices.

Basically "remembered almost as an epic among Americaâ€™s 12,000 Bosnian Muslims" is a phrase modifying "One of the proudest of family legends". We can get rid of it and still get a complete sentence like this: One of the puoudest of family legends is the digging of ...

The structure of this sentence is similar to this:

One of the best students in our class, I believe, is Ann.
