A is incorrect because you cannot make the comparison between the speed and the newly bed hardier varieties.
B is incorrect because we want a simple noun modifier. "Having" modifies an entire independent clause but whats before it is not an independent clause.
C is correct because it makes the correct comparison and uses an appropriate modifier.
D is incorrect because if you look at the modifier and eliminate the fluff, it is "which can preserve its sweetness" and that doesn't properly modify Silver Queen Corn.
E is incorrect because it incorrectly makes the comparison between the speed and the sweetness

30 s approach.

Unlike must always be followed by noun.

Understand what are we comparing-
Silver Queen corn,
and newly bred varieties.

only C and D pass above test; D is out because of meaning error.

Wrong comparison in A. BCD corrected that error.

only C is correct grammatically and meaning wise too.

E) the sweetness of Silver Queen, which can be preserved only by rushing it to market soon after picking,


This sentence deals with a comparison. The comparison is between 'Newly Bred harder varieties' and 'Silver Queen corn'. So eliminate the options A (speed is compared) and E (the sweetness is compared).

Among B, C and D:
D) - Illogically implies that the SQ corn is rushing to the market soon after it has been picked.
B)- Having to be rushed soon after it is picked- must modify a clause- (Giving details about the action/result) Hence it cannot modify the clause newly bred harder varieties.
C) is the correct answer- as the modifier logically describes the speed with which it is rushed to the market.
