The sentence is in present perfect. So the underlined portion should start with 'seen' rather than with 'saw'. This eliminates A, B and C.

E uses the wrong modifier.
Hence the answer is D, which uses the correct modifier.

D 2..
Visitors to the park have often looked up +> eliminates A, B, and C.
D is concise and effective and serves the purpose.

In (E), seen monkeys sleeping on the branches, whose arms and legs have hung

How "whose" modify branches, but not "monkey"?

Hi.

"Whose" is a noun modifier and as a general rule noun modifiers need to follow the touch rule i.e. they should touch the noun they seek to modify.

(A) saw monkeys sleeping on the branches, whose arms and legs hang

(C) saw monkeys sleeping on the branches, with arms and legs hanging
(D) seen monkeys sleeping on the branches, with arms and legs hanging
(E) seen monkeys sleeping on the branches, whose arms and legs have hung

In D , phrase '' with arms and legs hanging" seems to modify visitors. therefore I found it incorrect

I'm no expert but below are the issues with E.

1. The "whose" modifies branches which is incorrect. It should modify monkeys.
2. have hung is the wrong tense for this question.

I have seen quite a few questions that look kinda ambiguous if you just go by grammar rules. But if you go by meaning it looks okay because we know Visitors who goto the park will not sleep in the branches with arms hanging.
