A) the historic buildings in Lodz, Poland, were long ignored by tourists, traveling - Incorrect. Modifier error. 'traveling' incorrectly modifies 'historic buildings'

B) the historic buildings in Lodz, Poland, were long ignored by tourists, who traveled - Correct.

C) tourists long ignored the historic buildings in Lodz, Poland, traveling - Incorrect. The phrase 'Riddled with .....' must modify historic buildings.

D) tourists long ignored the historic buildings in Lodz, Poland and traveled - Incorrect. Same error as in C.

E) tourists long ignored the historic buildings in Lodz, Poland; they depended - Incorrect. Repeats the error.

Riddled with bullets, shattered by bombs, and hidden in alleys, the historic buildings
in Lodz, Poland, were long ignored by tourists, traveling instead to more
well-known memorial museums.

A) the historic buildings in Lodz, Poland, were long ignored by tourists, traveling
B) the historic buildings in Lodz, Poland, were long ignored by tourists, who traveled
C) tourists long ignored the historic buildings in Lodz, Poland, traveling
D) tourists long ignored the historic buildings in Lodz, Poland and traveled
E) tourists long ignored the historic buildings in Lodz, Poland; they depended



The bullets,bombs and alleys are modifying historic buildings and not tourists, so we eliminate C,D and E.
Option A traveling is modifying historic buildings which is wrong.

We are left with Option B which is correct.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



This question has to do with ambiguity arising from a lack of pronouns and improper word order. Choices C, D and E all imply that tourists are the ones who were riddled with bullets, shattered by bombs and hidden in alleys. This is a case of dangling modifiers. Choice A implies that the buildings may have been the ones traveling to more well-known memorial museums. Choice B uses the pronoun “who”. This correctly connects all the parts of the sentence. Choice B is the correct answer.
