D. Byron’s powers of observation make his letters as a group (= taken collectively) the rival of the best novels of the time.

Apart from what ob said... remember that .. in non-restrictive clauses , use of relative pronoun "which" is not the best usage. "that" would be a better choice

satya, if you need explanation of restrictive and non-restrictive , please tell us. i can write a lesson on that.

hope it helps

hello
I would prefer to differ on this ...

D- states ''that his letters AS a group'' ,which means some thing like'' byron's letters ONLY AS a group rival the best novels of the time ...'' which changes the intended meaniing of the sentence...

that shows that byrons letters may not rival when NOT A GROUP... guess this sounds like carzy asking but I don't understand how els can this be understood as .. enlighten me!

Have fun :-D

make is not followed by as. So E is correct.

This is bit confusing.

E sounds correct.

The answer from SC1000 is D. Not sure why...

Thanks!

i'll go with choice d.

that make his letters the rival of the best novels.this statement is right because letters and novels are compared which is fare enough.
"as a group" defines letters and is inserted in the statement.
