Sorry guys from digressing.....

The increased popularity and availability of televisions has led to the decline of regional dialects, language variations which originate from diverse ethnic and cultural heritages and perpetuated by geographic isolation.

I was wondering,shouldn't the original sentence have a 'have' instead of a 'has'???

It's 'has been' instead of 'have been' because 'popularity' is singular

We need a past tense 'originated' because the language variations took place in the past, and not the present --> Down to B and C

I'm going with B because 'that' modifies 'language variations'

||lism of participles. 1st participle is active and the 2nd one is passive.

Selene,

Could you please give some more examples?

I am sooo , but seeing your question, I couldn't leave ..

>> We landed on X, a planet created million years ago and orbiting around Y.
(Now the 1st participle is passive and 2nd is active)

>> Vitamin C, increasing the effectiveness of defence system and produced by plants and some animals, can't be produced by human body.
(1st participle is active, 2nd is passive)

Hope this helps ..

I think E. dialects are language variations originating originating from diverse ethnic and cultural heritages and perpetuating by geographic isolation.

The sentence says The increased popularity and availability of televisions has led to the decline of regional dialects and then it explains what dialects mean.
