got really confused with this one. Is E ok from the sentence structure point? Isn't it a run-on sentence?
Thank you

Option E says: In the shark's jaws, many spare teeth lie in seemingly limitless reserve, each one ready to slide into the appropriate position whenever an active tooth is lost or worn down

A run-on sentence is when two Independent clauses are connected by a comma. However, the following portion of option E is not an Independent clause:

each one ready to slide into the appropriate position whenever an active tooth is lost or worn down

By the way, if there were to be an is in E (each one is ready to slide into the appropriate...) then option E would have been run-on.

p.s. Our book EducationAisle Sentence Correction Nirvana discusses run-on, its application and examples in significant detail. Have attached the corresponding section of the book, for your reference.

A. Run on.

B. 'which' incorrectly refer to 'teeth'.

C. 'each one of which' - singular. 'are' - plural; Numbers error.

D. 'each one of which' incorrectly refer to 'teeth'.

E. Correct

Ans: E
D & E correct the SV number error but introduced another pronoun ambiguity error. Each in Option D refers to jaws or teeth is not clear. Hence 'E'

To add to the explanation above by EducationAisle:

The part "each one ready to slide into the appropriate position whenever an active tooth is lost or worn down" is a subgroup modifier referring to "many spare teeth". Hence the sentence is not run-on.
