To read of Abigail Adam's lengthy separation from her family, her difficult travels, and her constant battles with illness is to feel intensely how harsh life was even for the so-called aristocracy of Revolutionary times.Choice A
(A) To read of
(B) Reading about
(C) Having read about
(D) Once one reads of
(E) To have read of
The sentence uses simple present tense structure :- To read X
(verb) to feel Y
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
with any conjunction. The usage of once
E) INCORRECT :- Redundant have
makes the subject wordy.
Hope that helps!
