Why is E wrong?

when the precipitation lasted a year from 1907 why is that you are using precipitating?

I was focusing fully idiom on this one and got into trap.

I think E seems better than D here.

VarunBhardwaj & Blackbox:

This question was posted almost 8 years ago. As far i know, it was not mandatory to post the OA and source of the question at that time.

Some time back(Not sure of exact time frame) it is made mandatory to select the source and provide OA whenever a member post new questions.

Hope it helps

Is it possible for some expert/moderator to update the post with OA when the question is bumped up by verbalbot?

VarunBhardwaj: I have posted the OA and tagged the post as of now.

But i'm little skeptical that each time we have to check for post with OA & the tag when it is bumped. I believe only few questions(which are pretty old) have this kind of issues.

Most of the questions with these type of issues have been resolved. But there is an exception like the above one.

C,D—both X and
Y—wrong syntax goes off
A) "it" no antecedent
B) "they" no antecedent. Moreover, option B is a run on sentence. Since the main clause ” They precipitated…..” is connected to other clause merely by a comma

So E is correct. Correct ||sm 'revealed' .... 'precipitated' .
