....and the day doesn't seems going nice to me; and as usual BuLL is not going to reveal the source. Thats bad.
Anyways returning to the question.
A. George Crumb’s Vox Balaenae (Voice of the Whale), with its eerie timbre of the opening flute cadenza, evocative
cello harmonics, and shimmering antique cymbals create Since the subject is the book, the verb should be singular here. Create should be "creates"
B. George Crumb, in Vox Balaenae (Voice of the Whale), creates an eerie timbre in the opening flute cadenza, evocative
cello harmonics, and shimmering antique cymbals that are vivid imagery seems to modify ONLY antique symbals. Illogical.
C. The opening flute cadenza’s eerie timbre, the evocative cello harmonics, and shimmering antique cymbals in George
Crumb’s Vox Balaenae (Voice of the Whale) creates the three items are not parallel. "shimmering antique cymbals" must be preceded by "the" to make it a gerund parallel to previous nouns.
D. In George Crumb’s Vox Balaenae (Voice of the Whale), the eerie timbre of the opening flute cadenza, the evocative
cello harmonics, and the shimmering antique cymbals create Seems correct
E. The eerie timbre of the opening flute cadenza in George Crumb’s Vox Balaenae (Voice of the Whale), evocative cello
harmonics and shimmering antique cymbals, Run on sentence
Whats the OA and the...well leave it.
IMO D

Oh!!! i felt C is correct !!!
The opening flute cadenza’s eerie timbre, the evocative cello harmonics, and shimmering antique cymbals in George
Crumb’s Vox Balaenae (Voice of the Whale)
creates vivid oceanic imagery that is both majestic and serene.


Here Subject : George Crumb’s Vox Balaenae (Voice of the Whale) (singular)
so verb is : creates (singular)

Characteristics of opening flute cadenza’s are
    eerie timbre,
    the evocative cello harmonics,
    and shimmering antique cymbals

All these characteristics are of George Crumb’s Vox Balaenae

So actual subject opening flute cadenza’s leads this sentence not George Crumb’s Vox Balaenae

Hope i'm right.
Else please correct me...

Subject of a sentence can never be in prep phrase ->

The opening flute cadenza’s eerie timbre, the evocative cello harmonics, and shimmering antique cymbals in George Crumb’s Vox Balaenae (Voice of the Whale) creates
the bold part is a prep phrase! so the stuffs before if is the subject!

A:George Crumb’s Vox Balaenae ...create SV error; besides are there other errors in A?

B: George Crumb creates an X, Y, and Z. Shouldn't the other elements have appropriate articles as well?
the introductory "an eerie timbre" doesn't fit "an shimmering antique"; however "shimmering antique
cymbals that are"as explained by Marcab suggests only that item creates.


@Marcab IMO
Also, W, X, and Y in Z, create... means W, X, and Y do the creation. Y is the subject of preposition, while
the "in Z" plays the role of a modifier.
So, the "and shimmering antique cymbals in George Crumb’s Vox Balaenae " as employed
in choice C mentions "shimmering antique cymbals" as the 3rd element. The "in George Crumb’s Vox Balaenae"
only acts as a modifier to that element and does not affect the verb.

Source is from handout of a local gmat academy. I post questions that are beneficial and that are less likely
to create unhealthy controversies.

hey ->
A doesnt have a clause,
structure is SUBJECT , with (modifier) ........ period. We have no clause.
So the answer is D right?

we cannot have subject inside a prep phrase or object of prep cannot acts as subject. this is more common in reverse construction....

In A, in addition to the error i quoted in my first post in this thread, book is creating x. This is illogical.
In B, the "an" is implicit i.e. implies to all three in order to generalize.
I really love the questions that you post and honestly speaking I really wait for your daily stumpers.
Now whats the OA to this question?

The prime question here is who or what is creating vivid imagery?
A (the original text) says that it is the Vox Balaenae, B says that it is George Crumb and all the others say that the three features mentioned there create.

Going purely by grammar, D is the only viable option, which, however, deviates from the original intent. But these days meaning is also equally important, though not at the expense of grammar. So D
