I read somewhere that possessive pronouns + ing verb is considered wrong in GMAT, so its supporting is wrong.
Only E solves this problem,however referring to the pronoun antecedents must also give an appropriate answer but this one is a real time saver.

I read somewhere that possessive pronouns + ing verb are incorrect in the GMAT, hence its support is incorrect. I am going to share this thread floridaloteryresults.com to my kith and kin That they know about that. Only E solves this problem; nonetheless, referring to the pronoun antecedents must also provide a valid solution; however, this one saves time.
