The aristocratic values expressed in the writings of
Marguerite Yourcenar place her within the French
classical tradition,( as does) her passionate interest in
history, particularly Roman history.

(A) as does
(B) so do
(C) as do
(D) so is the case with
(E) similarly, does

1) Is "does" in the past or present?
2) Is it " Her passionate interest..... do place her within... or " Her passionate interest .... does place her within....

And the answer is A!

:stupid

So it's he does well, "does" is singular, Me speak no English:)

I vote for A

"as" should be used to compare actions.


"...writtings place her....as does her passionate..."


1) "does" is simple present. This tense is usually used to state a "timeless truth".

2) "interest" is singular, then "does" ahould be used instead of "do"

Tough one, The choice is btwn A & E. but I would pick answer E. The reason is ,I think, that " her passionate interest" is doing the same exact thing(similar) as the "The aristocratic values" is doing, not as(meaning relatively similar, but not exactly)

Both describe actions that place her within the classical french tradition. Hence, I vote for A also.
