Quite easy this one. BCD have a which with an incorrect antecedent so eliminated. E has an ambiguous weighing reference to a handheld computer. Only A is correct.

I picked A.
B & C are out because of incorrect modifier. "which" is referred to the noun immediately before it, and the modifier is modifying "world".
E sounded like the handheld computer weighs less than 11 ounces.
I didn't pick D because I feel that "claim to be" is the correct idiom.

How is "which" is D has incorrect antecedent? I think it clearly modifies the camcorder...

"claims to be" - is the right idiom, eliminate C, D, E.

I think D is unidiomatic, it also has ||'sm issues.

Digital Camcorder is as long as a hand held computer and weighs less than 11 ounces.

Is there a ||'sm issue here ?

But I feel that both D and B could be correct. In B I feel which could be modifying "world" but in B weighing is more concise than in and weighs in D.

Whats the OA.

Im confused between D and B

i think B has two problems 1 which incorrectly reffers to world insted of reffering to to digital camcoder and weighing also appears to be reffering to hand held computer..... so i think B cannot be the option

CDE cannot be correct as they have the wrong IDIOM so only option left is A which i think is correct

A and B have the same problem:

A. The electronics company has unveiled..., and it weighs less than 11 ounces-awkward

B The electronics company has unveiled..., weighing less than 11 ounces- too awkward.

@Yavasani: "is" parallels with "weighs", not with "as long as"

The world can not be as long as a handheld computer. The correct idiom is "claims to be." So answer is A.
