B has "...and their style is varying among women and houses"

Is that idiomatic? Also, I think the other answer choices make a clearer reference with '...from woman to woman and house to house'

'whose' is definately needed to describe the women. C adds a whole new clause with the conjuction 'and' which doesn't work out too well.

A doesn't really seem parallel in the modifying clause.

Frankly, I really can't decide between A, B, and C...

Agree with akiboshi. The 'is' in B put me off. I'll go with A although I dont like the 'and' between iconography and in a style that varies ...

Whats the OA?

my opinion [#permalink] New post 12 Apr 2006, 10:32
B: It has to have symmetries are .. and if amonng woman and houses.. is simple and straight..

C looks close to correct but its too wordy.. so B in my opinion is the right choice for this.
