Firstly marcodonzelli I very much agree with you to have high scores we all need to reason our answers.
I did most of the times.But missed a few :lol:

Patience Lovell Wright, whose traveling waxworks exhibit preceded Madame Tuscan’s work by 30 year, became well known as much because of having an eccentric personality as for having skillfully rendered popular public figures in wax.

(A) well known as much because of having an eccentric personality as for having skillfully rendered popular public figures in wax
Eliminated=>
1. because of having is wordy.
2. "of having" and "for having" not parallel

(B) well known as much for having an eccentric personality as for skillful wax renderings of popular public figures.
Hold it
(C) well known as much because of her eccentric personality as she was for her skillful wax renderings of popular public figures.
not parallel ... its very clear
(D) as well known for having an eccentric personality as having skillfully rendered popular public figures in wax.
not parallel ... its very clear ;
1. X became as well ( known ...) as ( having ...)
2. X became well as much ( for .... ) as ( for ...)
I find the construction [2] better than [1].

(E) as well known for her eccentric personality as for her skillful wax renderings of popular public figures.
Same as D

E

Everything else lacks ||ism.


A: as much because as for... not ||
B:wordy
C: same problem as A
D: not || missing the for

Also ABC lack the intent of the sentence as well known... is correct. it encompases the "well known" which is more clear.
