When analyzing a manuscript in a foreign language, a translator often finds an analytical lexicon to be extremely helpful because it not only defines but also parses words.

a)When analyzing a manuscript in a foreign language, a translator often finds an analytical lexicon to be extremely helpful because it
b)When analyzing a manuscript in a foreign language, a translator often finds analytical lexicons to be extremely helpful because the lexicons
c)When analyzing a manuscript in a foreign language, an analytical lexicon is often extremely helpful because the lexicon
d)When analyzing a manuscript in a foreign language, an analytical lexicon is often extremely helpful because it
e)Analytical lexicons are often extremely helpful when analyzing a manuscript in a foreign language because they

First "When analyzing a manuscript in a foreign language" is modifying Translator and can not modify analytical lexicon.
so option C and D are wrong.

Option E is wrong here because of meaning. This is saying that Analytical lexicons are reading manuscript.

Now remaining options are A and B.
Option B : Option B has plural "lexicons" at the end which can not have verbs in "defines" and "parses". so subject/Verb problem.

Now option A is right.Lets analyze option A also.
"When analyzing a manuscript in a foreign language" analyze translator which is good.
Here it can refer only to Lexicon only because to modify Translator we need "Wh
o"

I hope my explanation helps.

B and E del because subject - verb agreement
C and D del because of modimaer issue

+1 A

"When analyzing...," requires that the subject in the main clause be a person or something that can analyze.

"When analyzing a manuscript in a foreign language" needs to modify the "translator" =>C and D out.

Secondly, the non underlined part has singluar verb(s) - defines..parses => B and E out.
