### HideShow timer Statistics

Scientists have observed large concentrations of heavy-metal deposits in the upper twenty centimeters of Baltic Sea sediments, which are consistent with the growth of industrial activity there.
(D) sediments from the Baltic Sea, findings consistent with the growth of industrial activity in the area
(E) sediments from the Baltic Sea, consistent with the growth of industrial activity there

What is wrong with E and how can we correct it?

From the two options it looks like D

E incorrectly compares sediments to industrial activity
D compares findings as consistent with industrial activityg

D is correct. It is the findings that are consistent with the growth of industrial activitiy, not the sediments itself.

it is the deposit findings that are consistent with the industrial growth, not the sediments. also E uses 'there' which does not provide a clear reference. hence, E is incorrect.
