SC - Modifiers

Post Thu Jun 14, 2007 12:17 pm
14. Physics professors, the Arnmore Laboratories and Arnmore Research Facilities were founded by Leo and Fontove Arnmore in 1989 after ten years of fundraising.
(A) the Arnmore Laboratories and Arnmore Research Facilities were founded by Leo and Fontove Arnmore in 1989 after ten years of fundraising
(B) Leo and Fontove Arnmore founded the Arnmore Laboratories and Arnmore Research Facilities in 1989, after ten years of fundraising
(C) after ten years of fundraising, the Arnmore Laboratories and Arnmore Research Facilities were founded by Leo and Fontove Arnmore in 1989 (D) the Arnmore Laboratories and Arnmore Research Facilities were founded in 1989 by Leo and Fontove Arnmore after ten years of fundraising
(E) Leo and Fontove Arnmore founded after ten years of fundraising the Arnmore Laboratories and Arnmore Research Facilities in 1989

What is the difference between B and E?

In option E, the sentence structure is incoherent and imbalance.
(E) Leo and Fontove Arnmore founded after ten years of fundraising the Arnmore Laboratories and Arnmore Research Facilities in 1989
The project founded should be stated immediately after (founded) i.e "Leo and Fontove Arnmore founded---"

In E, there's ambiguity introduced by "after ten years of fundraising the Arnmore Lab ..." - doesn't sound logical. Founded "what" and "when" needs
to come close to the word "founded"
