Error Identification

IdentifierError Type
As more and more vs more and more Miscellaneous / Run on Sentence 
Are waiting Miscellaneous / Tenses


Explanation: 

The use of the word ‘as’ is important to connect the first clause to the second thereby preventing a sentence run-on. 

A – This is a run-on. 

B – The use of ‘although’ is incorrect since there is no contrast in the ideas between the two clauses. 

C – While it uses the correct connector ‘as’, the use of ‘planning and buying’ is awkward and redundant. 

D – This is the correct answer. E – ‘being that’ is awkward; ‘are waiting’ is incorrect since we need to use the simple present to show states of being.
