Straight C - Subject Verb and diction issues on the rest of them.

I deem A incorrect since "the kind" implies the follow up will be singular and analyses is plural.

I'm going to choose C.

D and E are just incorrect word placement, verb usage, pronoun usage, etc.
B is too wordy. A is close to me, but analyses didn't seem to make sense here, since I think the critics would conduct analysis that has been developed.....

It should be A, as kind of analyses implies more than one method of analyzing the bible, hence the plural verb have sounds better. Whats the OA ?

I am going with C as "the kind of analyses" is singular and should be followed b "has been" (as in C) and not "have been" (as in A).

OA : C

==========

So, to recap everyone's idea on this, POE is

E) <-- definately out

A) <-- out because "the kind" (singular) doesn't match "analyses" (plural)

B) "to be studied" <-- wordy

==========

RyanDe680, do you mind explaining why D is incorrect? Can you elaborate more on "word placement, verb usage, pronoun usage, etc." you mentioned?
