And what about the last prepositional phrase, "in 1909 becoming bla bla bla". Why do you feel that it is incorrect, I am assuming that you feel so.
a quote from a previous comment
As a novelist modifies Selma Lagerlof
turned || with wrote
"becoming the first woman and also the first Swedish writer that won" modifies Selma Lagerlof
How much modifiers should we have ??
In becoming ete etc.......in my logic point out to novelist but at the same time should refers to selma and at the same time novelist modifies selma.......
No way, we would lose the focus and the meaning of the sentence.
I would like to know from souvik if we can have more than a modifiers that modifie at the same time the same thing, especially in a long and complex sentence.
I think the answer is no. let me know what about.
Hi ppl great discussion there, I wonder what approach needs to be taken for these kind of questions(completely underlined sentences). I'm sure concentrating on the differences and elimination doesn't stand a chance as we have to read and reread all the sentences before choosing the right answer.
