812. The Quechuans believed that all things participated in both the material level and the mystical level of reality, and many individual Quechuans claimed to have contact with it directly with an ichana (dream) experience.
(A) contact with it directly with
(B) direct contact with it by way of
(C) contact with the latter directly through======
(D) direct contact with the latter by means of
(E) contact directly with the mystical level due to
Any gramatical flaw that i might be missing ???
A and B are out because "it" is ambiguous.
E is too wordy and awkward.
Between C and D I will go with C because D is again wordy.
Correct answer is C.
Very small different between C & D.
C is wrong because:(1) "direct contact" vs "have contact directly"
You need an adjective
to modify "contact". In C, directly is an adverb that modifies verb "have". C changes the meaning
. "direct contact" is correct.(2)"through" vs "by"
If you want to talk about "direct" result, "by" is better. For instance:
My house was destroyed BY
the earthquake. (direct result)
His house was rebuilt THROUGH
the help of his friends. (indirect result)
Hope it helps you a little bit.
Please +1 KUDO if my post helps. Thank you.
