Hi, Guys

I've just tried my first practice test. With this question, i am really don't get it! Any help, please!

By the way, the phrase:
Quote:
The disappearance of women as objects of historical studies during this period has elements of irony to it.
Here: It refers what? The disappearance or historical studies.

cheers!

It refers to "The disappearance".
The author states that the shift to more rigorous research required that the secondary sources be regarded.
This on one hand made the women as objects disappear from the history and also tremendously increase their importance as historical subjects.

IMO E

I did the same mistake in my GMATprep and took answer (E).

The clue here is to read further after the "elements of irony" In the following sentence they are explained. It says that on the one hand the earlier historians relied on secondary information and did not even consider first hand info but on the other hand when archival research and critical editing came up (so very new and good information was available) the historians tottaly ignored that.

Therefore we see that although the information about women got better, the historians totally neglected that.

Hence answer (D)

OA is also (D)
