While digging in the Egyptian desert, huge fossil bones have been found by paleontologists, which appears to have been the second most massive dinosaur that ever lived.

The quick options that we have to choose whether the subject followed by Egyptian Desert is huge fossil or paleontologists. Options A and B are in a Passive voice which must be treated as a red flag as GMAT sentences will be parallel in voices ( Mostly Active). Options A and B can be eliminated for the usage of the restrictive clause "which" modifies the noun paleontologists.

Option C is eliminated due to the ambiguity in meaning, as it infers paleontologists found huge fossils from second most dinosaur lived with certainty.

Between option D and Option E. Option E uses an awkward construction "which are from" that is not necessary

A. huge fossil bones have been found by paleontologists, which appears to have been
B. huge fossil bones have been found by paleontologists, which appear to be from
C. it appears that paleontologists have found huge fossil bones that are from
D. paleontologists have found huge fossil bones from what appears to be
E. paleontologists have found huge fossil bones, which are from what appear to be

Why do we need 'appears' here? Appears is singular while the word huge fossil bones is plural. Don't we need the word 'appear' here?

Hi pra1785

Please note that "appears" here refers to "the second most massive dinosaur that ever lived.".

Here is a great explanation given. Kindly check and let us know in case of any concern. :)
