Quite a tough one. Will go with C for clarity. Other options seem to say that only Aenid is from english. E is nonsensical.

Kudos Please... If my post helped.

The key Point: From English modifies only the Aeneid in English; If it were to modify all the three epics, then from English should be placed before all the three epic

A. of the Iliad, the Odyssey, and the Aeneid from English and are: According to me this is the correct choice, if we look at it after reversing to subject – verb, it turns out to be a classic compound sentence which will read like this:

Arabic translations of the Iliad, the Odyssey, and the Aeneid from English are among Angara Salam al-Khalid’s publications and are still read in schools and universities.

B. of the Iliad, the Odyssey, and the Aeneid in English—are: the use of the dash before the verb ‘are’ is not acceptable


C. from English of the Iliad, the Odyssey, and the Aeneid—translations that are --- change of meaning from the original, implying that all the three epics are from English.

D. of the Iliad, the Odyssey, and the Aeneid in English, whose translations –missing the verb ‘are’

E. from English, of the Iliad, the Odyssey, and the Aeneid, are--- This is a run-on; The Two ICs are just spliced by a comma. In addition, the meaning is distorted.

There should be one more option.. I GIVE UP :evil:

Looking at daagh's response A seems viable. however still i feel there is a parallelism issue remaining in that sentence.
I'd prefer C. though it changes meaning, it still is the only grammatically correct choice in my eyes and who knows what the intended meaning is?

For me, Ans C it is.

yeah tough call.

IMO A.

We should have
Arabic translations of the X,Y and Z .
We can't use from English at the Beginning as iad, the Odyssey, and the Aeneid are translated from English -> This kills C and E
"Whose" in D is wrong.
"-" in B - I guess we need some coordinating conjunctions here. So left with A.

Edited a typo! :roll:

My guess is B.
Reasoning :
These are translations to English. SO I would go with in English rather than from English ( translated from Arabic to English)
This eliminates A, C and E.
D is grammatically incorrect - whose translations still read ...
Choice left is B. ( Also dash is most flexible punctuation so would fit here)

Actually none of the three epics are actually English ones. (This is some outside knowledge though). So i guess what the sentence means to talk about is the Arabic versions of these epics which this guy translated from English. That is Arabic translations of English translations.

E. from English, of the Iliad, the Odyssey, and the Aeneid, are Can't describe the reason but while reading this, I immediately felt that I can save my time NOW by choosing C which is much much better. :lol:

Hii Daagh.
I feel A implies two meaning here.
What are still being read in schools? Is it these books or there translations?
C corrects it.
thats what I feel.

Of the three epics, I only know Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey, which are Greek, while I haven’t even heard about the third. If it is so that that all the three belong to some alien language or languages other than English, and that they were translated first from that language or those languages to English and then Anbara Salam al-Khalidi further translated them into Arabic, Well, C is the right choice, as I have already pointed out. Then, the appositive modifier, translations that are still read is fitting in smugly.

Coming back to grammar, in a classic compound sentence, if the subject of the first clause can stand as the subject of the second IC also, then, the subject need not be repeated in the second ic in order to avoid redundancy. This is the structure in A, where the two different things are just attached by a fanboy–and –

Therefore there is no ambiguity about what are being still read. It is definitely the translations and because translations are the subject of the second clause, the text has deliberately made it elliptical. If the subject of the second IC were to be publications, then it has to be certainly stated so.

I have no issue about C being the correct choice, provided it is undeniably so.

C is parallel and after the three things translations (subject) clarify that they are still studied.

B is not correct for reasons explained several of the earlier posts.
Note:
(i) ALL 3 items were translated from English to Arabic; Not just the Aeneid as implied in B
(ii) The "translations" are still read in schools today. Take a look at the attached line diagram for illustrations.

2nd: dashes are used (either at the end or in the middle of a sentence) to add more meaning or introduce a contrast.

The part after the dash has to match with the content of the part before, which must be an
independent clause as in the case at hand: Independent clause - thought
-Blah, blah, blah are Arabic translations from English of X, Y, and Z -
translations that are still read in schools today.

IMHO, the dash is the universal punctuation and can be used to replace any other punctuation. In short, you cannot go wrong with the dash unless and otherwise there is some other mistake in the sentence.

@gmatbull: OA please?


Hi narulajasneet

OA is C, you can go back to several posts, and see gmatbull's post which is "the OA is" ==> click quote at the right corner ==> see OA is C.

Anyway, I would like to elaborate this question a bit.

Among Anbara Salam al-Khalidi’s publications are Arabic translations of the Iliad, the Odyssey, and the Aeneid from English and are still read in schools and universities.

A. of the Iliad, the Odyssey, and the Aeneid from English and are
Wrong. The structure of A is: Among X's publications are translations of A, B, and C and are still read....." ==> "and" is parallel marker ==> thus "and are still read" and "are translation" are parallel ==> so "are still read" may refer to "among X's publications" ==> That is not correct. The intended meaning is "translations of the Odyssey, and the Aeneid" are still read in school.

B. of the Iliad, the Odyssey, and the Aeneid in English—are
Wrong. The usage of "—are" is quite ambiguous. Because we don't know it refers to "other publications" or just "translation of the Odyssey, and the Aeneid".
In addition, "and the Aeneid in English" may imply only the Aeneid was translated from English.

C. from English of the Iliad, the Odyssey, and the Aeneid—translations that are
Correct. "—translation are" clearly refers to "translations of the Odyssey, and the Aeneid"

D. of the Iliad, the Odyssey, and the Aeneid in English, whose translations
Wrong. "whose" is incorrect.
