A, C - Not parallel (beacause - for)
D - not parallel (second for is absent)
E - altered intent

Give me B!

Is it C?

here "for" acts as because to make it parallel...

I though it was B too :(

I will go with E - I assume the "was renderings" is wax renderings.

In b, having is like being which GMAT doesnt like. not parallel.

Thanks for correction. It is indeed 'wax rendering'. But could you plz explain why did u pick up E and not others?

oK , let me see...

I went with B as well...

we need "as much" here to show that she was well known because (equally) for her personality as for her work..

also we need "as..for" form..

(D)as well known for having an eccentric personality as having skillfully rendered popular public figures in wax.
(E)as well known for her eccentric personality as for her skillful wax renderings of popular public figures.

'Became well known as' is preferred to 'Became as well known'. Eliminate D, E
C - as she was - wrong - as she is may be correct - Eliminate
B for having is not parallel with for skillful wax rendering. - Eliminate
Answer = A. rendered maintains past tense correctly. having maintains parallelism.

I originally picked b, but after reading it again, I think E is the right one.

A is clearly wrong, the correct idiom should be "as much for ... as for ..."

I can't decide between A and E. Is there an OE?

I think, we should care the words next to "for" also. For example, I choose B because B satifies the rule: "as much for...as for". But B wrong! :lol:

hey sondenso,
I noticed that too, but B is wrong for a different reason, it's not parallel.
The phrase after the for's are not parrallel. if they are both none then it will be okay.
say "as much for its eccentric personality as for skillful wax renderings of popular public figures".

I think
