The anthology Georgian Poetry was named to give the impression that the contents were as contemporary as the newly installed king, George V, but by selecting rather conventional poets, the term Georgian came to have the opposite connotation.

Understand the logic of the sentence.
Georgian poetry was named after the new king George in order to give the impression that the contents of the poetry were ascontemporary as the new king, but because of the selection of conventional poets, the motive was not fulfilled.

E is not a sentence because there is no verb.

D) The anthology Georgian Poetry was named to give the impression that the contents were as contemporary as that of the newly installed king, George V, but the selection of
In this answer choice, it implies that the contents were as contemporary as the contents of the newly installed king. Illogical.
Also, there is a SVA issue because "contents" has to be referred with "those".
"but the selection of" doesn't makes complete sense. "Because" is lacking.

"but by selecting rather conventional poets" must be followed by the "noun" which actually does the task of "selecting rather conventional poets". In A and B, the usage implies that "the term Georgian" does this task. Illogical. Eliminate A and B.

C seems the best.

Hope that helps.

Agree with Marcab.

One more point to be noted is the difference between the usage of "by selecting rather conventional poets" and "because of the selection of rather conventional poets". The former conveys that the term Goergian itself selected conventional poets and came to have the opposite connotation. Where as the latter actually says the reason for the term Georgian to have the opposite connotation.

C is the best.

I have a question....

Option A and B are grammatically and meaning wise same, no difference;
D and E have error selection of rather conventional poets>>, the term Georgian comparison error.

C is left, just go for it.

No, I don't like your explanation. Here's another attempt

First of all, check the last parts of the sentences in the answer choices. 'but by selecting'...the term. The term cannot select so A,B,E are out. Now between C and D that the contents were as contemporary as that of. 'That of', should be 'Those of' if we're referring to contents so D is out.

C stands

Hope this clarifies
Cheers!

The comparison is between the contemporaneity of the king and the anthology

Hi sayantanc2k,

"because of" is used for verbs , for "selection" here shouldn't "due to" be used in choice C.

Thanks

To me, in the OA:
C)The anthology Georgian Poetry was named to give the impression that the contents were as contemporary as the newly installed king, George V, but because of the selection of

seems like "contents of the anthology" is compared to "newly installed king". Doesn't this sound illogical?

Could someone make me understand this?

The verb is "came", not "select". The term came because of the selection. Option C is alright.

The game stopped because of rain.
The stoppage was due to rain.

Here "rain" remains the same for both cases. "Selection" in option C is equivalent to "rain" in the above example.

The term came because of selection. (came: verb)
The coming of the term was due to selection. (coming : noun - gerund)

No, there is no problem with this comparison - "contemporary" means "of the same time" - the contents and the king can be contemporary.

However the usage "as contemporary as" in this case seems to be problematic. When the term "contemporary" is used in the sense "modern" or "belonging to the present" then such usage is alright. But when "contemporary" is used to depict "occurring at the same time", then such usage seems problematic.

My father's outlook is as contemporary as that of any modern teenager ... correct.
My father is as contemporary as Netaji Subhash Bose... problematic. (means: my father is as modern as Netaji.. wrong meaning)
My father is contemporary of Netaji Subhash Bose... correct.
