Why is the original text choice pushed to the last ? It should be A choice, rather than E . Am I right?

Is really a 700 level ??


There are many things that make up a difficult question - the phrases in between the subject and verb certainly increase the difficulty level as does the issue of the ing verb vs. which. This question also comes from a question near the end of the official guide.
