Answer is D

Explanation:

eliminate a and d due to sub-verb disagreement as paul gauguin in wrongly placed.

Eliminate C as when should follow after years instead of where.

between d and e, later is awkward and D is the only correct choice left.

D has right modifiers in place. "Having" modifies Paul. This is right.

"where" modifies "Tahiti".

I agree. The only choice that mantains the parallel structure is choice D.

OA is D. "Where" should be referred to "Tahiti" not "years".

hi,

Having lived in Tahiti for several years, where life was slow and relaxed, it was difficult for Paul Gauguin to readjust to the hectic pace of Paris upon returning.

a)Having lived in Tahiti for several years, where life was slow and relaxed, it was difficult for Paul Gauguin to readjust to the hectic pace of Paris upon returning.

b)Having lived for several years in Tahiti, where life was slow and relaxed, it was difficult for Paul Gauguin to readjust to the hectic pace of Paris upon returning.

c)Having lived in Tahiti for several years, where life was slow and relaxed, Paul Gauguin had difficulty readjusting to the hectic pace of Paris upon his return.

d)Having lived for several years in Tahiti, where life was slow and relaxed, Paul Gauguin had difficulty readjusting to the hectic pace of Paris upon his return.

e)Having lived for several years in Tahiti, where life was slow and relaxed, Paul Gauguin had difficulty readjusting upon returning to Paris because of the hectic pace.

if you read the sentence properly then actually the meaning of sentence is :
since PG was living FOR SEVERAL YEARS in TAHITI where life was SLOW and RELAXED,====>SO this is the reason that PG FACED difficulty in adjusting to PARIS lifestyle(hectic pace).....so if you add because in second part ...its like redundant and wordy.

moreover ....PG had difficulty readjusting......here its meaning is not clear what he is readjusting .
thats why its wrong.

kudos if it helped.
