This might freeze you for a moment! But actually easy to crack. Will post OA after the discussion

Glaciologists believe that the frozen corpse recently found in a melting Alpine glacier, apparently the body of a shepherd who is thought to have lived about 4,600 years ago, was preserved uncrushed by snow and ice because of the body's unique topographical position

A apparently the body of a shepherd who is thought to have lived
B the body of a shepherd, apparently, who was thought to live
C the body of an apparent shepherd who was though to live
D the body of a shepherd who is thought of as apparently living
E the body of a shepherd who was apparently thought to live

Thanks

I narrowed to A and E but did not understand which one to pick.

Can someone explain how to pick between A and E?

What is the source of this question?? "The body of shepherd" is modifying "glacier".

In A, can "apparently" modify "the"? I would assume it would need to have commas?

The OA is A.

If you notice the split ----> believe "is" / believe "was".
Since belief is still true glaciologists still believe, so we have to use the present and present perfect tense. "is" and "have lived"

Only two choices A and D make sense. D gets eliminated for obvious reasons. A it is.

A is correct.

"to have lived" needs to be used instead of "to live" because he is no longer alive.

very tricky~!!!

but after looking at it, it is clearly A. Found being the more recent action... and 'have lived' would be the action that took place before it being found.

+1 for A. I arrived at the answer more by eliminating other choices than by picking the right one.

IMO with A

As he is talking about past "Lived" is the correct usage

Apparently must modify the body of shepherd. In all other answer choices apparently is modifier things other than body.
