Touching on subjects like greed and corruption in corporate America and delivering a scathing condemnation of contemporary capitalism, the novel will depict one blue-collar man’s attempts to succeed in the business world.

(A) the novel will depict
(B) the novel shall depict
(C) there will be a novel depicting
(D) it is a novel that depicts
(E) it will be a novel that depicts

After the modifier phrase, we need the doer of the action touching & delivering. So C,D & E are out.

Between A & B > IMO it is A because will is preferred to shall in conveying future .
Waiting for experts' comments.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



Choices E and D are clearly wrong because there is no noun preceding the ‘it’ that can be referenced. This question involves a dangling modifier. What is touching? The novel. The novel should therefore come after the comma. Eliminate C. ‘Shall’ is not usually used in the third person. It is usually used in the first person. It is used to make suggestions or to give offers of help. For example, ‘shall we go the beach’ and ‘shall I help you with those bags’. The sentence is correct as written. Choice A is the correct answer.
