The tallest building in the world constructed in the 1100s is the St. Mary’s Cathedral
in Lincoln, England, which, nearly 520 feet tall and having 20 bells
spread across 3
towers.
(A) 1100s is the St. Mary’s Cathedral in Lincoln, England, which, nearly 520 feet tall and
having 20 bells
ERROR;- although verb is there. WHICH wrongly modifies England. portion after which is NOT parallel

bells
ERROR:- VERB missing in first part before AND

(C) 1100s, the St. Mary’s Cathedral in Lincoln, England, which is nearly 520 feet tall and
has 20 bells.
ERROR:- WHICH is wrongly placed, not required here

(D) 1100s, is the St. Mary’s Cathedral in Lincoln, England, being nearly 520 feet tall and
with 20 bells
ERROR:- modifier problem after ENGLAND

(E) 1100s, the St. Mary’s Cathedral in Lincoln, England, is nearly 520 feet tall and has 20
bells
CORRECT as it is

E
