For this problem you really need to understand how to use with in a sentence.

Rural dwellers can get satellite internet, but it is far slower than the ambitious satellite services that were being developed a decade ago, with longer lag times.


A. can get satellite internet, but it is far slower than the ambitious satellite services that were being developed a decade ago, with longer lag times
A is wrong because longer lag times is too far from what is should modify (satellite internet).

B. with longer lag times can get satellite internet, but it is far slower than the ambitious satellite services that were being developed a decade ago
B is wrong because it is saying the individuals themselves have longer lag times.

C. can get satellite internet, but it is far slower with longer lag times than the ambitious satellite services that were being developed a decade ago

C is wrong because it is saying far slower is with loner lag times. It should be something like it is far slower, longer lag times (etc.) In the second version longer lag times would modify it (satellite internet).

D. can get satellite internet, but it is as slow as the long lag times that the ambitious satellite services that were being developed a decade ago

D It is wrong to compare satellite internet with lag times.

E. can get satellite internet, but with longer lag times, it is far slower than the ambitious satellite services that were being developed a decade ago

E is correct.

IMO C.
Reason for cancelling E was run-on , if we remove - " but with longer lag times ".
Could anyone explain this.

Thanks in advance. :-)

Sentence structure independent clause, dependent clause, independent clause is valid.

A complex-compound sentence (with at least two independent clauses and one dependent clause) is: 'Dave sleeps, and because he has the house quiet at last, Sam reads.'

Experts please shed some light on Why E is correct option.
I rejected E because when the non-essential modifier between comma is removed, then the sentence becomes a run-on.
GMATNinja , egmat or any expert please help us here. Thank you.
