Why E and why not D and vice versa?


In D, it seems like she is holding the festivals ONLY in her home.

I will go with E. The problem with the original sentence is pronoun reference. E solves that problem and is also the most brief. Choice D's problem is that Aho seems to refer to the name of the home since Aho is introduced immediately after the opening modifier.

Please explain your choice. Thanks


D is the clear choice.

- Aho is a Kiowa matriach
- festivals held in her (Aho's) home
- restrictive clause introduced by "that" shows that festivals featured the preparation of great quantities of ceremonial food..........and the recounting of traditional tribal jokes and stories.

OK now I realize what the problem with E was. E incorrectly uses the modifier home instead of festivals to describe what it featured. D users the correct essential modifier "that" to correctly describe festivals and not homes.

You rock man.. this is one of those googlies that the test makers like to throw in every now and then...

In E - it sounds like it is the home that featured all the wonderful things being talked about in the string of absolute phrases...
