The benefits of the new policies are far reaching, economic experts say, providing a powerful vehicle to chip away at poverty in other countries and expanding the earnings of immigrants in the United States.

A)far reaching, economic experts say, providing a powerful vehicle to chip away at poverty in other countries and expanding the earnings of immigrants in the United States.
Correct. "providing" and "expanding" modify "the benefits" correctly.

B)far reaching, economic experts say, as it is providing a powerful vehicle to chip away at poverty in other countries and expand the earnings of immigrants in the United States.
Wrong. "The benefits" is plural. Bad grammar structure.

C)far reaching, economic experts say, providing a powerful vehicle to chip away at poverty and expand the immigrants’ earnings in the United States.
Wrong. Not parallel.

D)far reaching, economic experts say, by providing a powerful vehicle to chip away at poverty in other countries while it expands the earnings of immigrants in the United States.
Wrong. Parallelism problem + "The benefits" is plural.

E)far reaching, economic experts say, in that they provide a powerful vehicle to chip away at poverty in other countries expanding the earnings of immigrants in the United States.[/quote]
Wrong. "They" refers to the benefits or experts? + Parallelism problem.

Hope it helps.

Though I picked the correct answer.

I have a doubt (may be because of over reading the same sentence).

Can we parallel chip and expand in option C?

Why can't we consider "The benefits of the new policies are far reaching, economic experts say, providing a powerful vehicle to" an initial non-parallel part?

To elaborate....

The benefits of the new policies are far reaching, economic experts say, providing a powerful vehicle to chip away at poverty in other countries

and

The benefits of the new policies are far reaching, economic experts say, providing a powerful vehicle to expand the immigrants’ earnings in the United States.

I know we can also eliminate C based on the usage of apostrophe "immigrants’ earnings" because "the earnings of immigrants in the United States" is more precise than "immigrants’ earnings in the United States"

please respond

I am confused. When we remove extra information from a sentence, shouldn`t we remove it with comma?
Here "economic experts say" is an extra information, and if we remove it from sentence with the commas associated, then the Verb+ing modifier (providing) has no comma left.

My meaning analysis
The benefits of the new policies are far reaching, economic experts say,
providing a powerful vehicle to chip away at poverty in other countries and
expanding the earnings of immigrants in the United States

A is correct- no error
B Parallelism - expand and providing. Moreover pronoun IT is not having a correct antecedent.
C other countries is missing changing the meaning as if the poverty is removed in only US.
D Pronoun error IT.
E Changes meaning as if expanding is done so as to provide. :) .

Hi,

Please try to make your understanding as simple as possible. Here the main subject is "The benefits". The benefits are far reaching , [HOW] 1. Providing a powerful.. and 2. Expanding...
these are two ing modifiers which should point to the subject of main clause to provide the extra information.
B : it incorrect subject reference.
C : Changes the meaning ( new subject vehicle, verbs chip and expand).
D : while introduces simultaneous actions so debilitating the meaning. it (refers to the vehicle again.)
E : we need to join two ideas referring to a subject with and/aswell as/and also, due to which the construction is ambiguous.
