A poem by Mallarm, which was begun in 1865, the final version of which appeared in 1876, was the inspiration for Debussy s â€œAfternoon of a Faun.â€

Good one!

Upon POE, I narrowed my options down to A, B and E.

(A) - A poem by Mallarm, which was begun in ...., the final version of which appeared in ..., was the inspiration for... : I see nothing potentially wrong with this statement. The "final version" clearly refers to the poem.

(B) - A poem by Mallarm, which was begun in .. and appeared in final version in ..., was the inspiration for ... : I'd have expected an "its" in this option - something on the lines of ".. which was begun in .. and appeared in its final version in ... "

(E) - A poem by Mallarm, which was begun in ..., its final version making its appearance in ..., was the inspiration for ...: "its final version making its appearance..." - reduces clarity on the noun - pronoun relationship.

Hence, I'd go with (A). Waiting for the OA and some explainations alongwith it.

B ?

A) in A it seems like "the final versions..." modifies "...1865"

(B)

"the final version of which" is incorrect, I believe.

B it is

A poem by Mallarm, which was begun in 1865 and appeared in final version , was the inspiration for Debussy s â€œAfternoon of a Faun

bold letters intruduces a non restrictive clause to correctly modify the subject poem

a)1865, the final version of which appeared

Seems Ok. But not a great sentence

b) 1865 and appeared in final version

Clearly 'its' is missing. This is WRONG

c) 1865 and it appeared in final version
Nope

d)1865, whose final version appeared

whose is typically used as possesive form of animate objects. It can also be used as a possesive form of inanimate objects though, just like in. 'The book whose pages were torn is mine'.

EDITED:
oops seems like 'and' is missing here. I didn't look closely
Wrong!

e) 1865, its final version making its appearance
Wordy, a bit ackward

B it is

Cheers to all those who got it right !

Folaa3 - guess you are ready to crack GMAT once for all.

But I still fail to understand why an "it's " was missing from B.
And why is A incorrect ? Any definite answers.

PRAVEEN - what's a non restrictive clause ?
