Also "which" cannot be used to introduce "Restrictive clause - Scrawled on stationery". Even if it is used, it should have been preceded by a comma.

What is Scrawled - > Recipe. Eliminate C. Recipe is singular - > A is eliminated. In D described is wrong as description is still present.
Multiple issues with E. is describing is wrong , no need of a helping verb here. How to prepare for is wrong again.

B wins.

GREEN:PREP Phrase RED:verb BLUE = Subject
Scrawled on stationery
which has a letterhead from a title insurance company,
the recipe describe in some detail how to prepare a stuffing for chicken or turkey.

recipe need singular verb describes

A:Wrong. Which needs to be after a comma here. Only when which follows a preposition then a comma may/may not be needed. eg:On the table is a box in which i keep all my files.-->No need of comma.
B:Correct. SV agreement is proper for recipe..describes.
C:Wrong:Scrawled is a verb-ed modifier and needs to modify the recipe not the recipe's description.
D:Wrong: as to how to is wordy.
E:Wrong: how to prepare for is incorrect.

:-D



Is the usage of "that" in D correct? I know it is not the answer but I predicted that instead of which

Doesn't the OA implies that the scrawling has been done with a letter head :-O

daagh sir,

Is'nt the use of WITH in option B wrong. It is sounding as if the scrawled was done with a letter head ( instead of a pen).

Or the "scrawled on the stationary" and the " with... phrase" 2 separate modifiers? I thought the sentence was trying to say that the recipe was scrawled on a stationary. And the stationary is marked with a letter from a specific company. Am I wrong in my understanding?

I feel that is true not only with B but also with all other choices. The topic erroneously makes the modifier after the word 'stationery" without a comma as if it is an essential modifier. Important thing is that the scrawling has been done on stationery, which incidentally happens to be a letter-pad of an insurance company. It matters little whether is it a letterhead or a scribbling pad or a notepad since these materials do not play a role in writing the recipe. That is the reason that the topic is itself is superfluous and wordy.
