Option E has includes in GMAT Power Prep and not include. The sentence has a plural subject so include is needed. so E is eliminated.

My question is why not B. Is this choice wrong because of parallelism between growing and famous or because growing is refering to the whole clause before it. Please help me.

as big as 30 feet long is wrong. This is what I have read in another forum. However, I want to get it confirmed.

BTW,I 've edited option (E).
