"binge a property" does not sound correct.

The prolonged slide in U.S. home prices and the dollar's weakness against some currencies , both originating from the current economic crisis, are driving a binge a property investment by Asians eager to own a piece of America.

Must Be (A) for correct S-V usage...

Dear Experts

Please can you advice why E option is not correct.

Had chosen E because I understand an action " prolong slide" that is driving a property binge and is till in action..

But my option is wrong, please advice.

Yes, can someone please correct this? It's very off - putting when there are careless spelling and grammar mistakes outside the scope of the actual question.... :|

The prolonged slide in U.S. home prices and the dollar's weakness against some currencies, both originating from the current economic crisis, are driving a binge a property investments by Asians eager to own a piece of America.

A) both originating from the current economic crisis, are driving a binge a property investments by Asians eager
B) both originating from the current economic crisis, drive a binge a property investments by eager Asians(by Asians who are eager not by all asians,eager Asians changes the meaning)
C) both originate in the current economic crisis, are driving a binge a property investments by Asians who are eager(participle is required for modification)
D) all originating in the current economic crisis, are driving a binging of property investments by Asians who are eager(X and Y ,originating from not originating in is correct)
E) all originating from the current economic crisis, have been driving a binging of property investments by eager Asians(eager Asian changes the meaning,present perfect tense suggest that action started in the past and running continuously since then.which is not the case actually )

I will go with A

A) both originating from the current economic crisis, are driving a binge a property investments by Asians eager : CORRECT
B) both originating from the current economic crisis, drive a binge a property investments by eager Asians : Meaning error: Original sentence speaks of Asians eager to own property. This option speaks of a subset of Asians to own a property and that subset is eager asians to own a property.
C) both originate in the current economic crisis, are driving a binge a property investments by Asians who are eager : Originate from, Asians eager is concise and a better expression than Asians who are eager.
D) all originating in the current economic crisis, are driving a binging of property investments by Asians who are eager : Same as in C.
E) all originating from the current economic crisis, have been driving a binging of property investments by eager Asians : Same as in B.
