X starts with "of", Y does not start with "of" - moreover, the relative pronoun "who" should have an antecedent. The correct parallel structure would be:

...both (of contemporary Hispanic authors living abroad) and (of those who are..) correct.

Alternatively the preposition "of" can be placed outside the parallel structure:
of both (contemporary Hispanic authors living abroad) and (those who are....) correct.

B.


Note the familiar structure:
"Intar... has moved away... and now draws on..."

Simply realizing this common structure and I believe B is the right choice.

SPLIT1) ELIMINATE THE PREPOSITIONS, APOSSITIVE AND FOCUS ON STRUCTURE: INTAR ,(APPOSITIVE),HAS MOVED AWAY FROM(PREPOSITION AND PREPOSITIONAL PHRASE) AND(COORDINATING CONJUNCTION) NOW DRAWS ON(PREPOSITION AND PREPOSITIONAL PHRASE),BOTH (PARALLEL STRUCTURE "BOTH/AND". IN OTHER WORD JUST FOCUS ON THE STRUCTURE INTAR...HAS MOVED AWAY FROM....AND NOW DRAWS ON..... C, D,E ARE OUT.

SPLIT2) PARALLELISM "BOTH…AND" MUST BE WELL CONSTRUCTED WITH WORDS FOLLOWING BOTH/AND IN PARALLEL SUCH AS IN "BOTH THOSE WHO LIVE ABROAD AND THOSE WHO LIVE" A, C, D AND E OUT.

SPLIT3) "AND NOW IT DRAWS", THE COORDINATE CONJUNCTION "AND" JOINING TWO INDEPENDENT CLAUSES REQUIRES A COMMA (,) BEFORE THE WORD "IT". A AND C ARE OUT. Main Clause + , + Coordinating Conjunction + Main Clause. REFERENCE: http://www.chompchomp.com/terms/coordin ... nction.htm

Form Usage: Both X and Y

hispanic authors living abroad and in US.

Only B does justice.

All others somehow change the intended meaning.

Doubt regarding D.

both x and y

x= of contemporary Hispanic authors living abroad - Authors living abroad

Many many thanks for your explanation! Just a small clarification

So when we write the sentence as: those who are --- what is the antecedent that who refers to? Is it referring to authors by virtue of 'those' ?
I just assumed that who refers to authors even without 'those' in the sentence

"those" must be or at least is prefered in paralel pattern. this means the words next to the noun and "those" must be the same:

the persons who speak... and those who learn

with the persons ... and with those

only choice B satisfy this parallelism.

...both (of contemporary Hispanic authors living abroad) and (of those who are..) correct.

Alternatively the preposition "of" can be placed outside the parallel structure:
of both (contemporary Hispanic authors living abroad) and (those who are....) correct.


The pronoun "who" does not refer to the same "authors" (contemporary historic authors) stated earlier in the sentence - it refers to some other "authors" (who live in US). Demontrartive adjectives "that" and "those" can create such a copy of a noun previously used in a sentence.

The car you have is costlier than that I have.
Here "that" creates a new copy of "car"; it does not refer to the same "car" mentioned before. Similarly "those" does not refer to the same "authors", but it creates a new copy of "authors", and "who" refers to this new copy. Without "those", "who" would erroneously refer to the previous "authors".
