    1. Saying it cedes territory to Montenegro, the deal is contested by Kosovo’s opposition parties,
    2. Saying it cedes territory to Montenegro, Kosovo’s opposition parties contest the deal,
    3. The deal is contested by Kosovo’s opposition parties, which say it cedes territory to Montenegro,
    4. No correction required

 

  • Correct Answer
    Choice (C)

Detailed Solution

The construct of the given sentence is incorrect.

Firstly, the phrase ‘saying it cedes territory to Montenegro’ applies to Kosovo’s opposition parties, and not the subject of the sentence, which is ‘the deal’.

Secondly, the modifier ‘a claim the government rejects’ relates to the claim, and not to the noun phrase ‘Kosovo’s opposition parties’ it is placed next to.

Option (C) corrects these errors, by placing the modifiers right next to the nouns they modify.

Correct Answer: C
