Let's attempt to dissect the various parts of the original sentence and see how they are related

Margaret Courtney-Clarke has traveled

to remote dwellings -- prepositional phrase - not critical to sentence

in the Transvaal -- prepositional phrase - not critical to sentence

to photograph -- infinitive describing the purpose of the travel

the art of Ndebele women, -- the object of the infinitive "to photograph"

WHATEVER FOLLOWS FROM HERE ON DESCRIBES THE ART



whose murals are brilliantly colored, (The art's murals are brillinatly colored)

their geometrical symmetries {

[embellished -- describes geo symms

<with old and new iconography> additional prep phrase describing the embellishment]

and --------- conjunction connecting the two descriptions

[in a style ---- describes geo symms

<that varies from woman to woman and house to house> additional phrase describing the STYLE]

}

.



(A) whose murals are brilliantly colored, their geometrical symmetries embellished with old and new iconography and in a style that varies from woman to woman and house to house

(B) whose murals are brilliantly colored, their geometrical symmetries are embellished with old and new iconography, and their style is varying among women and houses

(C) whose murals are brilliantly colored, their geometrical symmetries are embellished with old and new iconography, and they are in styles that vary from woman to woman and house to house

(D) with murals brilliantly colored, their geometrical symmetries embellished with old and new iconography, and their style varies among women and houses

(E) with murals that are brilliantly colored, their geometrical symmetries embellished with old and new iconography, and their styles vary among women and houses


A okay..

Arj - I must keep myself on guard - sometimes i have gone on a rampage explaining an answer only to see you coming back and posting a different OA :-) Ha ha...

should be Vary from x to x ........ "vary among" seems to be incorrect.
So its between A and C ...

Here geometrical symmetries and styles are talked about Murals ... So in C They refers wrongly.

A seems to be correct.

IN C it says" and they are in a style". What is "they" referring to? The iconography? It is akward. The OA is more concise.
