Seismological studies, which measure and analyze the speed and strength of seismic waves, help scientists determine the structure of the earth's interior in revealing important factors like the densities of the earth's many layers, along with the depth and geological composition of the earth's core.

I'll post the OA after five responses. Much Thanks!


Meaning :
Seismological studies help scientists determine the structure of the earth's interior
How they helped? : By revealing important factors
Examples of such factors are the densities of the earth's many layers and the depth and geological composition of the earth's core
Such studies measure and analyze the speed and strength of seismic waves.


A : Use of "like" to give example is wrong. "in revealing" should be replaced by "by revealing". "and" is preferred over "alongwith"
B: Ans
C : Use of "such" + "Like" is wrong. Two items must be connected by "and" and not "also"
D : use of "with the determination" is wrong. Use of "like" to give example is wrong. "in revealing" should be replaced by "by revealing". "and" is preferred over "and also".
E : use of "with the determination" is wrong, Use of "comma + Verb ing" i.e. ", revealing" is wrong. Use of "those" results into change in meaning.
