110. Even though her career was cut short when she was in her prime and the fifteen recordings she made were disappointing artistically as well as technically, Olive Fremstad (1871-1951) has never been entirely forgotten by opera aficionados.

A. though her career was cut short when she was in her prime and the fifteen recordings she made were
B. though her career was cut short while in her prime, with the fifteen recordings she made
C. as her career had been cut short when she was in her prime, with the fifteen recordings she had made
D. with her career having been cut short when she was in her prime, and the fifteen recordings she made were
E. with her career cut short while in her prime, and that the fifteen recordings she made were

I think I misunderstood the concept, so one more time I fell in the trap although I involved in the discussion earlier!

Need your help, thanks!

This is a good question!

Not sure on this one. I was torn between A and E.

A. Even though her career was cut short when she was in her prime and the fifteen recordings she made were disappointing artistically as well as technically, Olive Fremstad (1871-1951) has never been entirely forgotten by opera aficionados.

E. Even with her career cut short while in her prime, and that the fifteen recordings she made were, disappointing artistically as well as technically, Olive Fremstad (1871-1951) has never been entirely forgotten by opera aficionados.

I prefer the use of 'while' vs 'when' in E. Also A makes it all passive.
E may be.

hi OA is option A

choice e
'...that the 15 recordings...' is not only nonparallel with the words immediately following 'with', but it's also grammatically nonsensical (you can't start a sentence with 'even that...').

choice d
lack of parallelism again ('with her career having been cut ...' is nonparallel to 'the ... recordings ... were ...'). also, 'with her career having been cut short' is very unnecessarily wordy, especially in comparison to the much more concise and mellifluous wording in choices a and b.

choice c
'even as' suggests that the two things being describe d (the cutting short of her career and her not being forgotten by opera aficionados) are contemporaneous events, an idea that doesn't make any sense.

choice b
* the phrase 'while in her prime' necessarily refers to the subject of the clause in which it is found. therefore, that clause appears to be saying that 'career' is some sort of female entity, and that the career was cut short while in 'her' (i.e., the career's, according to this strange logic) prime. that's ... bad.
* also, the way the gmat uses 'with ...', it must be followed by a noun or noun equivalent. so, for instance, you could say 'with her 15 recordings', but you can't say 'with her 15 recordings disappointing...' (which is no longer a noun phrase).

choice A is correct. incidentally, it's the only choice that exhibits proper parallelism, which alone is reason enough to choose it.
