BB has traveled to remote houses in the Caribbean to photograph the art of Indian women,( whose paintings are brillantly colored,), their geometrical symmetries elaborated with old and new iconography and a style that varies from female to female and house to house.)

A) This is the right answer, but why? Actually, you can tell because it sounds the best among the remaining choices but due to copyright I am just going to the main point.

B) whose murals are brillantly colored, their geometrical symmetries are embellished with old and new iconography, and their style is varying among women and houses.

ETS claims the inserting of are before embellished into an independent clause will create an run-on sentence. Why?
If you have any questions

It seems you don't know what a Run-on sentence is.... Otherwise you would have known why. Am I right?

Is that a run-on sentence? It doesn't sound like one.

If you have a subject and a verb - you get a clause or aka sentence. If you have two of them together, you need to separate them either with a semi-colon or a conjunction and a comma. if you have two clauses unseparated, you get a Run-on sentence.

Adding ARE will add a verb and thus create an independed clause.

Also among women and houses is logically incorrect - it comnpares women and houses, but I guess you have noticed this.

I guess these are not right because these are descriptors mixed with an independent clause, a no-no.

ETS is saying it leads to a run-on sentence, are they right?

Even if they are wrong, you can't argue

Think about it: ARE IMBELLISHED - isn't it a VERB???

Symmetries - isn't it a NOUN?

I think they do this in the third grade.

BB has traveled to remote dwellings in the Transvaal to photograph the art of Ndebele women, whose murals are brilliantly colored, their geometrical symmetries embellished with old and new iconography and in a style that varies from woman to woman and house to house.
