GMAT SC Question

Hello guys,

Since 1981, when the farm depression began, the number of acres overseen by professional farm-management companies have grown from 48 million to nearly 59 million, an area that is about Colorado’s size.
(A) have grown from 48 million to nearly 59 million, an area that is about Colorado’s size
(B) have grown from 48 million to nearly 59 million, about the size of Colorado
© has grown from 48 million to nearly 59 million, an area about the size of Colorado
(D) has grown from 48 million up to nearly 59 million, an area about the size of Colorado’s
(E) has grown from 48 million up to nearly 59 million, about Colorado’s size

[My Question]

Knowing major reasons why the correct answer should be C, however, I’m not sure about the correctness of the “about Colorado’s size” in choice E. Is the ellipsis of “an area” legit?

Best,
Roy.

No it is not correct.

Except for “with” linking absolute phrase, we should NOT use other preposition phrases separated by a comma and put at the end of a sentence.

C correctly uses absolute phrase.
