This seems a poor question to me lets see why....

correct idiom is 'so x that ...A,B and D out

now remaining options C and E are awkward for
both lack 'be' verb i.e. 'was'...


anyway if I am forced to pick one that will be E

my query is if
So dogged were Frances Perkins’ investigations of the garment industry, her lobbying for wage and hour reform persistent, that
and
So dogged were Frances Perkins’ investigations of the garment industry, so persistent her lobbying for wage and hour reform, that

both are run on sentences?

E is correct.

the sentences you mentioned are NOT run on sentences because the clauses are connected by "that"

Like many SC Q's this is a direct pick up from NY Times

http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.h ... A965958260

E is correct.

As goalsnr said, So X, So Y that Z is perfectly correct. Other wise NY Times would not use it.

Hi pal,

C cannot be the choice because it uses-'Her' but there is no direct name referent.

Thanks many :) ,

'her' is a valid usage in C as its in possessive form. However you cannot use a subject pronoun - 'she'

2 Parallel Sentences here to be checked...
So dogged were Frances Perkins’ investigations of the garment industry that Alfred E. Smith and Franklin D. Roosevelt .......
So persistent was her lobbying for wage and hour reform that Alfred E. Smith and Franklin D. Roosevelt .......
Here both colored portion are parallel and correct sentences independently.

Here the sentences are joined, but second parallel structure is joined in. But the second parallel structure has been converted to a Absolute phrase by deleting the verb(was) from second sentence.
So dogged were Frances Perkins’ investigations of the garment industry, so persistent was her lobbying for wage and hour reform, that Alfred E. Smith and Franklin D.
Roosevelt recruited ....

Press +1 Kudos, if you think my post gave u a tiny tip.
