Ans-1 The best answer is E. The pronoun whose is the best way to link the dream with Robinson is a botanist.

Ans-2 The best answer is B. The phrase "As literary criticism grows more complex" introduces an ongoing condition that leads to consequences described in the rest of the sentence, which should be expressed with simple present-tense or present progressive. The use of like rather than such as is incorrect. Other choices seem wordy.

I agree with answers posted.

Please keep the answer choice A as it is. Do not mix it up with other choices and move it to E as
