OA is E
I am sorry if the question looks messy, but got this question from some notes of my friend.
thank you for your response


E. seems OA makes sense. orginally i choose D too.

but now I realize Aheab took abroad the prophesies of the misterious harpooner not the misterious harpooner itself.

straight E for me. Reading moby-dick has surely helped :)

I thought of (E) ......but there is no mention of the captain in (E) so went with (C).

Can anybody explain how is (E) correct without captain being mentioned??

OA is E

Official Explanation

Much like Macbeth when he interprets the witches’ prophecies all too literally, the mysterious harpooner who Ahab takes aboard the Pequod has the captain accepting his strange prophecies without questioning their hidden meaning.

A. the mysterious harpooner who Ahab takes aboard the Pequod has the captain accepting his strange prophecies without questioning their hidden meaning...wrong comparison,Ahab shud be in place of the mysterious harpooner

B. the strange prophecies of the mysterious harpooner he has taken aboard the Pequod are accepted by Ahab without questioning their hidden meaning...same as A

C. the mysterious harpooner whom Ahab takes aboard the Pequod has the captain accepting his strange prophecies without questioning their hidden meaning...same as A

D. Ahab accepts the strange prophecy of the mysterious harpooner whom he has taken aboard the Pequod,without questioning their hidden meaning...S-V agreement prob....prophecy(singular) and their (plural)

E. Ahab accepts the strange prophecies of the mysterious harpooner he has taken aboard the Pequod, without questioning their hidden meaning...Best choice

The underlined portion must name Ahab immediately in order to clarify the comparison between Ahab and Macbeth. It is Ahab, not the harpooner, as in choices A or C, and not the prophecies, as in choice B, who is much like Macbeth. Choice D has the right structure but has an agreement error between prophecy and their.
