In one scene, Nike, the ancient goddess of victory, alights on a ship, (her wings outspread, with her garments rippling) in the wind.
A) same
B) her wings are outspread, her garments ripple
C) her wings outspread and her garments rippling
E) whose wings are outspread and her garments rippling
the answer is C, but i thought A,B,C were all momma splices because it has a subject and a verb… how do i solve this problem?

“Momma Splices” would be a great band name.

Yeah, this is a tricky one, but only B is a comma splice. A is wrong because it’s not parallel, and C is right because it is parallel. In the second half of the sentence, “outspread” and “rippling” are adjectives.
