A. set a record in 2007 to become the fastest nonmagnetic train, which shuttles
B. set a record in 2007 to become the fastest nonmagnetic train, shuttling
C. set a record in 2007 to become the fastest nonmagnetic train, it shuttles
D. which set a record in 2007 to become the fastest nonmagnetic train, shuttles
E. setting a record in 2007 to become the fastest nonmagnetic train; it shuttled



To me D seems to be the answer.. My expln as follows..

C & E can be easily eliminated.. C - Run on sentence after comma and E - tense error because of 'shuttled'..
I felt that 'shuttles' should be parallel to 'averages' and so I go with D.. A and B do not meet this criteria..

OA plz??


daagh : what is a run on sentence and how to identify it. ??...pls help.

Was struck between B and D.

Finally chose D.

The TGV, France's high-speed train, set a record in 2007 to become the fastest nonmagnetic train, which shuttles passengers from Lorraine to Champagne-Ardenne and averages over 293 kilometers per hour (173 miles per hour).

A. set a record in 2007 to become the fastest nonmagnetic train, which shuttles - "which" incorrectly refers to magnetic train => meaning, TGV was fastest of the non-magnetic trains that shuttles between Champagne-Ardenne

B. set a record in 2007 to become the fastest nonmagnetic train, shuttling - shutting not parallel with averages

C. set a record in 2007 to become the fastest nonmagnetic train, it shuttles - run on sentence

D. which set a record in 2007 to become the fastest nonmagnetic train, shuttles - correct choice. "which" correctly refers to TGV, also shuttles and averages parallel

E. setting a record in 2007 to become the fastest nonmagnetic train; it shuttled - First part is fragment

Experts, is my reasoning correct, especially choice A elimination?
