I'm confused. There is only one thing that "them" can be referring to in answer E.

Answer is C. E has problem with the connecting word 'and'. You cannot say that "I will go to school, and study'. Instead, the correct is " I will go to school and study"

Re: Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully [#permalink] New post 27 Jun 2012, 04:51
Neat question that tests modifiers and pronouns.

Correct answer is:
(C) In her book illustrations, which she carefully coordinated with her narratives, Beatrix Potter

-- 'which' correctly modifies illustrations.
-- 'she' and 'her' correctly represent Ms. Potter.

Cheers,
Der alte Fritz.

Option A and B parallelism error. Option D and E misplaced modifiers. Leaves you with option C.

Re: Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully [#permalink] New post 02 Jul 2012, 10:17
Voted for C because

(A)
Main clause :
Beatrix Potter, [prepositional phrase], [verb-ing modifier] ,capitalized [on her keen observation and love] [of the natural world].

[in her book illustrations],[carefully coordinating them with her narratives],

subject: Beatrix Potter
verb: capitalized
verb-ing modifer: coordinating - modifies prepositional phrase [in her book illustrations] - i think that wrong. also "them" is wrong - refers to illustrations. I think it should refer to book.

(B) In her book illustrations, carefully coordinating them with her narratives, Beatrix Potter
verb-ing modifer: coordinating - modifies prepositional phrase [in her book illustrations] - i think that wrong.

(C) In her book illustrations, which she carefully coordinated with her narratives, Beatrix Potter
subordinate clause "which she carefully coordinated with her narratives"
here "which"-> refers to "book"
subject: Beatrix Potter
verb: capitalized
correct

(D) Carefully coordinated with her narratives, Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations
Verb-ed modifer : "Carefully coordinated with her narratives" is modifying subject "Beatrix Potter" which is wrong.

(E) Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully coordinated them with her narratives and
Beatrix Potter
carefully coordinated them with her narratives. "them" - refers to ???
and
capitalized on her keen observation and love of the natural world.

Subject : Beatrix Potter
verb: coordinated & capitalized

(D) Carefully coordinated with her narratives, Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations
(E) Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully coordinated them with her narratives and



I think its E. Correct modifier and past verbs for parallelism
'coordinated' and 'capitalized'


Even C resolved parallelism and avoids the ambiguous use of "them" in the sentence. Options A,B and E use "them" which is wrong.
Options D indicates that Potter was coordinated not her book
Also, in C "which" modifies illustrations correctly

Therefore C is the correct answer

Re: Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully [#permalink] New post 02 Jul 2012, 17:45
my take on the question...

Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully coordinating them with her narratives, capitalized on her keen observation and love of the natural world.

(A) Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully coordinating them with her narratives, <-- tense error with coordinating
(B) In her book illustrations, carefully coordinating them with her narratives, Beatrix Potter <-- again tense error with coordinating also sounds awkward
(C) In her book illustrations, which she carefully coordinated with her narratives, Beatrix Potter <-- OA
(D) Carefully coordinated with her narratives, Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations <-- "Carefully coordinated with her narratives" is fine, but what follows this clause should be "her book illustrations". Think about this... It is her book illustrations that are carefully coordinated with her narratives, not Beatrix Porter herself!
(E) Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully coordinated them with her narratives and <-- addition of "them" makes sentence awkward

The last sentence starts with the verb "capitalized on her..." Hence it should be preceded by the author, Beatrix Porter.

This reduces us to 2 options, B and C. "carefully coordinating [color=#ed1c24]them
" is undecisive whether it is referring to the books or to the illustrations in the book. (improper pronoun referencing). B is wrong,

Hence C

Hi subhojyoti.

There are two problems with D:

D) Carefully coordinated with her narratives, Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations capitalized on her keen observation and love of the natural world.

1) "carefully coordinated.." should modify "book illustrations". However, there is "Beatrix Potter" in the middle, the Verb-ed modifier seems modify "Beatrix Potter". => The sentence is fragmented.

2) If you read carefully, you see there is NO comma after "in her book illustrations" ==> The sentence is quite not grammatical.: ....Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations capitalized..................

Hope it clears.

Answer is C. Carefully co-ordinated with her narratives should modify Illustrations and not Beatrix Potter. So C is worded appropriately where Illustrations is modified. Also the use of which links the two elements.

Re: Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully [#permalink] New post 17 Jul 2013, 09:14
the main point tested in this question is adverbial "in the ilustrations"

the adverbial should be in the clause which is modified by the adverbial.

if we think this way, we will see that the adverbial is misplaced in many choices and C will appear more clearly.
