Can someone help me with the explanation part of this? This question really confounds me. Thanks!

Visitors to the park have often looked up into the leafy canopy and saw monkeys sleeping on the branches whose arms and legs hang like socks on a clothesline.

(A) saw monkeys sleeping on the branches, whose arms and legs hang
(B) saw monkeys sleeping on the branches, whose arms and legs were hanging
(C) saw monkeys sleeping on the branches, with arms and legs hanging
(D) seen monkeys sleeping on the branches, with arms and legs hanging
(E) seen monkeys sleeping on the branches, whose arms and legs have hung

OA D


have looked up...have [seen] not saw, so A,B,and C are out.

For E, "whose" describes "branches" which is illogical when it should describe the monkeys.

so answer is D

(E) seen monkeys sleeping on the branches, whose arms and legs have hung

This is how I thought

A, B & C - Eliminate. Verb Tense.

left with D & E
E - Eliminate - Context change. Sentence seems to say the arms and legs of branches are hanging.

Hence D is the answer.
