(A) Selling several hundred thousand copies in six months, the publication of "Maple Leaf Rag"
in 1899 was an instant hit, helping to establish Scott Joplin as the preeminent ragtime composer.
- publication cannot be an instant hit, its the published material that is the instant hit. Clarity issue here.

(B) The publication in 1899 of "Maple Leaf Rag" was an instant hit: in six months they sold several hundred thousand copies and it helped establish Scott Joplin as the preeminent ragtime composer.
- Same problem as A.

(C) Helping to establish Scott Joplin as the preeminent ragtime composer was the publication of "Maple Leaf Rag" in 1899, which was an instant hit: it sold several hundred thousand copies in six months.
- Same problem as A

(D) "Maple Leaf Rag" was an instant hit: it helped establish Scott Joplin as the preeminent ragtime
composer, published in 1899 and selling several hundred thousand copies in six months.
- disjointed sentence structure

(E) Published in 1899, "Maple Leaf Rag" was an instant hit, selling several hundred thousand copies in six months: it helped establish Scott Joplin as the preeminent ragtime composer.
- This is the best answer choice. instant hit properly modifes maple leaf rag.

E it is.

I DISAGREE IN ANS E [#permalink] New post 01 Apr 2005, 05:29
I disagree with E

(E) Published in 1899, "Maple Leaf Rag" was an instant hit, selling several hundred thousand copies in six months: it helped establish Scott Joplin as the preeminent ragtime composer

something need to modify the phase ->
selling several hundred thousand copies in six months

the modified phase --> Publish in 1899 ?? I don't think so... please advise
