This question is slightly different from another question posted earlier.

The basic structure to eliminate the answer stands on the meaning of word each. If one can understand why each is used the next step would be much easy. A & B is using each to say each structure has 600 rooms whereas C, D & E is confusing the meaning. C & E using each just after "rooms ," denote modifying the room. but the meaning should be structures connecting the complex regional system of roads not each room. In D the use of each is ambiguous.

Between A & B if we remove the clause between the comma, A has two "were" - awkward. Hence, B is correct.

B.

The key to this question is to identify the what is it that 'connected by a complex regional system of roads' is trying to modify.

Surely, it can't be rooms (rooms connected by roads?), and can't be Chaco canyon or the spectacular scale. Hence, it leaves us with only one option - engineered structures, and only option B uses the modifier correctly.

Hope this makes sense!
