In my opinion, in B, a phenomenon consistent with... correctly modifies the clause Scientists are increasingly descending upon the small town of Twinsburg.... The only problem in B is the ambiguity of the possessive pronoun its. Is my understanding right?

Please clarify my doubt!

Many thanks :)


Yes, the modifier in B is alright, but the pronoun "its" in "its appreciation" wrongly refers to "town".

(The pronoun is not ambiguous as you mentioned - it clearly refers to "town" because the previous "its" in the same sentence refers to "town". The problem with the pronoun is not ambiguity, but wrong reference.)

Scientists are increasingly descending upon the small town of Twinsburg, Ohio once a year for its Twins Days Parade, which is consistent with a growing appreciation in the scientific community for twin research.

A. Twins Days Parade, which is consistent with a growing appreciation in the scientific community for twin research
wrong.
B. Twins Days Parade, a phenomenon consistent with its growing appreciation for twin research
wrong.
C. Twins Days Parade; this is consistent with a growing appreciation in the scientific community for twin research
wrong.
D. Twins Days Parade; this increased scientific presence is consistent with a growing appreciation in the scientific community for twin research
this makes sense. Correct

E. parade known as the Twins Days Parade, consistent with a growing appreciation in the scientific community for twin research
