The following sentence contains either a single error or no error at all. If the sentence contains an error, select the one underlined part that must be changed to make the sentence correct. If the sentence contains no error, select choice E.
|During||the eighteenth century, some Hopi Indians|
|left||their||mesas||due to||drought and famine and|
|coming to live||with the Navajo in Canyon de Chelly|
|in northeastern Arizona.||No error|
Correct Answer: D
The error in this sentence occurs at (D), where there is an inappropriate verb form. The past-tense verb “came” is needed since the past tense has already been established by the past-tense verb “left.”
