tough!

I think D.

A , B are out..

When expressing the UNREAL, we should use could ,would or will

Here its not the case..the cheese was a way to preserve and reduce its bulk so that it could be shipped to distant markets..

C...cheese making was not a form of shipping..OUT

E...shipment of the output of the dairy herds was done in this form...

i didnt particuarly like...{{shipment...was done}}.

I dont like D too much..but i think its the best...

thanks

D is not correct.

Remember that "could" is also the past tense of "can".

I mixed up two different concepts.That rule should be used for conditionals only.I mean that ones starting with "IF".

Still can't find a very good reason for choosing B over E, except maybe because B emphasizes that cheese making made possible the export of dairy products, while E just mantions that this is the way they did it.

What do you guys think?

I also went for B. Mainly bcoz of its active voice as compared to E which is more passive in nature.

I think "E" has a little distort original sentence..........
E answer : "shippment" is modified by the out............................
this practice has diference with original sentence.

hey,

C) WAS MY OPTION UNTILL I realised its wrong.
explantion,
RULE ! A MODIFIER ALWAYS FOLLOWS THE MAIN CLAUSE AND THE SUBJECT THERIN.
now we hav the first part of the snetence as the main clause, CHEESE(which I like so much)is the subject, the modifies here should follow the main clause,hence in choice B) ''THE OUT PUT OF DIARY'' is modifying the cheese and should follow it,and it rightfully does.the C)is wrong cos of this.(it starts with ''shipment'').
As in the choice E)
,the the ''shipment''is modified instead of ''cheese''!hence it goes out of way.
have fun!

Cheese: The sentence has semicolon [#permalink]

There should be two independent cluses to make sense of a semicolon. So if the answer part contains a clause that is not independent then it is not the right one.
