The failing of the book lies not in a lack of attention to scientific detail but in the depiction of scenes of life and death in the marine world with emotional overtones that reduce the credibility of the work.

(A) depiction of scenes of life and death in the marine world with emotional overtones that
(B) fact that it depicts marine world scenes of life and death as having emotional overtones that
(C) depiction of scenes of life and death in the marine world, whose emotional overtones
(D) depiction of marine world scenes of life and death, which have emotional overtones and thus
(E) fact that it depicts scenes of life and death in the marine world, whose emotional overtones

Can someone help me know how to choose between A and C?

In C, the word "whose" refers to marine world making the sentence incorrect.....It is not marine world whose emotional overtones reduce the credibility of work

It is "the depiction of...... with emotional overtones that reduce the credibility of work".

'whose' does not agree with 'depiction' hence 'C' is out.

I also agree that whose is referring to marine world and i dont think marine world emotions, we are referring in the sentence, C seems out.

IMO A .... 'whose' refers to marine world which doesnot has emotional overtones but the depiction of scenes has.

A – Keep
B – fact? It is in the depiction and not in the fact. Eliminate
C – whose modifies marine world. Eliminate
D – which modifies death. Eliminate
E – same as B
