B,C,D are straight out

in between A& E

A is the best,

E marking of colors is awkward.

Present perfect tense – have typically [seen] is correct – eliminate B, C and D

(A) seen layers of sediment in the gaping canyon, with different colors that mark

(B) see layers of sediment in the gaping canyon, whose different colors mark

(C) been seeing layers of sediment in the gaping canyon, whose different colors are markers of

(D) been able to see layers of sediment in the gaping canyon, with different colors marking

(E) seen layers of sediment in the gaping canyon, marking by different colors

Between A and E:

E – with different colors that mark is better choice over marking by different color

A.

'seen' expected. A/E remains.

E - marking by different colors - states that someone did...

So A is better

B, C and D are out because of the change in tense. Between A and E, A is more complete.

This is from the 1000 SC collection. The OA given in the 1000SC answers document is D
I am kind of confused..I guess the OA is wrong. Any comments?

Danke!
