Hi,

Could someone help to explain this one, as "most of them..." serves as modifier for the noun "planets", is it reasonable to understand "which" in choice D is used to "planets" instead of "Jupiter"?

Thank for helping me!

Hi Marty, Thanks for your response. So as I understand, "beginning" is the V-ing form of the verb "begin", and therefore need to refer to a subject, right? I previously thought of "beginning" as a preposition which means "first", so I assumed that " Beginning in Mexico and Central America " could ac...

Hi,

Could someone help to explain why B is wrong? Is the use of "beginning" considered wrong in this choice? If so, please help to give me some insights for this one, as I am not very clear about the correct usage of "beginning".

Many thanks! :)
