During the nineteenth century Emily Eden and Fanny Parks journeyed throughout India, sketching and keeping journals forming the basis of news reports about the princely states where they had visited.
(A) forming the basis of news reports about the princely states where they had
(B) that were forming the basis of news reports about the princely states
(C) to form the basis of news reports about the princely states which they have
(D) which had formed the basis of news reports about the princely states where they had
(E) that formed the basis of news reports about the princely states they

I don't understand that why the answer is E.
I prefer to A.


The commission acknowledged that no amount of money or staff members can ensure the safety of people who live in the vicinity of a nuclear plant, but it approved the installation because it believed that all reasonable precautions had been taken.
(A) no amount of money or staff members
(B) neither vast amounts of money nor staff members
(C) neither vast amounts of money nor numbers of staff members
(D) neither vast amounts of money nor a large staff members
(E) no matter how large the staff or how vast the amount of money

I don't distinguish between the blue part of C and D.

If 1 is A, then Emily Eden and Fanny Parks formed the basis. But actually journals formed the basis.

IMHO: 2 is C (a large staff members in D is ridiculous, for "members" is plural and so takes no article). C is the most parallel too.

As for Q#1, I still have different opinion.
~~~~~keeping journals which form the basis of ~~~~~~~~
journals forming the basis of ~~~~~~~~~~

Wheteher I have missing point about grammar?

As for Q#2, the correct answer is D
I have a mistake on typing that not is "a large staff members, but is "a large staff".
I also prefer to C answer.

(A) forming the basis of news reports about the princely states where they had
(B) that were forming the basis of news reports about the princely states
(C) to form the basis of news reports about the princely states which they have
(D) which had formed the basis of news reports about the princely states where they had
(E) that formed the basis of news reports about the princely states they

A) a clause connector is missing. 'Keeping journals' and 'forming the basis are not properly connected'.

B) 'that were forming' has tense problems
C) they have again has tense problem. It should be they had. The use of which should be limited to non-defining information and should be set-off by a comma.
D) 'which' should be set-off by a comma. which should not be used as this a defining info(?)
E) 'that' is rightly used as this is a defining information. My pick

(A) no amount of money or staff members
(B) neither vast amounts of money nor staff members
(C) neither vast amounts of money nor numbers of staff members
(D) neither vast amounts of money nor a large staff members
(E) no matter how large the staff or how vast the amount of money

A)'amount of staff members' is wrong
B) nor (____ ) number of staff should be used
C) numbers? Is it small numbers or large numbers? Comparison not right and not clear
D) OK
E) verbs are missing
