Some of the tenth-century stave churches of Norway are still standing, demonstrating that with sound design and maintenance, wooden buildings can last indefinitely.

(A) standing, demonstrating that with sound design and maintenance, wooden buildings can last indefinitely => ing is ok as it is after , - participle

(B) standing, demonstrating how wooden buildings, when they have sound design and maintenance, can last indefinitely => ing is ok as it is after , - participle

(C) standing; they demonstrate if a wooden building has sound design and maintenance it can last indefinitely => ; is wrong there aren't 2 independent clauses .

(D) standing, and they demonstrate wooden buildings can last indefinitely when there is sound design and maintenance => "they demonstrate that" ambigious

(E) standing, and they demonstrate how a wooden building can last indefinitely when it has sound design and maintenance => "it" has no logical referent

Between A & B
B is unnecessarily wordy .
My Answer : A

(A) standing, demonstrating that with sound design and maintenance, wooden buildings can last indefinitely - Modifier
(B) standing, demonstrating how wooden buildings, when they have sound design and maintenance, can last indefinitely - Modifier
(C) standing; they demonstrate if a wooden building has sound design and maintenance it can last indefinitely
(D) standing, and they demonstrate wooden buildings can last indefinitely when there is sound design and maintenance – “…sound design and maintenance” of what???
(E) standing, and they demonstrate how a wooden building can last indefinitely when it has sound design and maintenance. “…they” who???


My vote is for "C"

My vote is (A)

vc109 - I think (C) not valid.

(C) standing; they demonstrate if a wooden building has sound design and maintenance it can last indefinitely

I am not sure a building can have maintenance
