(B) Festivals were held in Aho, a Kiowa matriarch’s home, which featured
(C) Aho, who was a Kiowa matriarch in her home, held festivals featuring
(D) In her home, Aho, a Kiowa matriarch, held festivals that featured
(E) Aho, a Kiowa matriarch, held festivals in her home that featured


A-wrong, 'they' - pronoun reference/number agreement error
B-distorts meaning, Aho is a person - not a place
C - she is a kiowa matriarch, not a kiowa matriach only in her home - distorts meaning, 'featuring' causes parallel construction error
D-awkward
E - should be the answer

(E)

I guess 'held festivals in her home that featured' distorts the meaning by saying that the events are featured in the home, and not by the festival. That would probably explain (D).

Studied this one in the error log today over lunch. The OA should be (D) becuase the features clearly describe the festivals.

E is wrong bcos it suggests that ... it is the home that featured but instead it is the festivals that featured... So D is correct.

Hope this helps...
