Hi Experts, As for this question, I strongly feel that Option A is the correct one since the 'living' after comma seems to be correctly modifying the preceding clause. Can you please highlight what makes Option B the OA? Thank you.

Hello Purvidebuka,

We hope this finds you well.

Having gone through the question and your query, we believe we can resolve your doubt.

In Option A, the phrase "the dolphins" incorrectly implies that certain, specific dolphins suffer in captivity, whereas the intended meaning is that dolphins, in general, suffer in captivity.

We hope this helps.
All the best!
