(A) To read of
(B) Reading about
(C) Having read about
(D) Once one reads of
(E) To have read of


Choice A

The sentence uses simple present tense structure :- To read X(subject) is(verb) to feel Y(object)

Is is the main verb.

The subject To read and the object to feel are in the infinitive form (Infinitive is a verbal consisting of the word to plus a verb [in simplest form] and acts as a Noun, adjective, or adverb).

The Infinitive form of both subject and object makes the subject phrase and the object phrase parallel to each other.

A) Sentence is correct as written.

B) INCORRECT :- Here the subject used in gerund form Reading, which is not parallel with object (which is an infinitive).

C) INCORRECT :- Awkward subject phrase Having read

D) INCORRECT :- Here reads acts as verb and thus the sentence contains two verbs reads and is with any conjunction. The usage of once is confusing.

E) INCORRECT :- Redundant have makes the subject wordy.

Hope that helps! :)
