    Good explanation here:

    Just want to add few things to that discussion:
    Quote:
    Making things even more difficult has been general market inactivity lately, if not paralysis, which has provided little in the way of pricing guidance.

    A) has been general market inactivity lately, if not paralysis, which has provided

    E) is that lately general market inactivity, if not paralysis, which provides
    In A) and E), which clause cannot jump non-essential modifier to refer to its referent.

    Quote:
    E) is that lately general market inactivity, if not paralysis, which provides
    Further, in E,which clause's tense itself is illogical as we don't have any universal truth, repeated action etc here.
