Why not C?


I think B is right answer for correct comparision between "oeuvre" and "the novel".
Its not C because I guess we care comparing plural ( those of H G Wells ) with singular ( novel written by ) . Had it been novels I guess that would have been right. But in this context it cant be novels as William wrote only one.

ans is B

Read carefully- in c 'those' means plural, refers to 'novels' but wen u look at the second part it is singular- 'novel' which is incorrect.

for c to be correct it shud be 'novels' in d the second part which makes it plural or change those to that to make it singular in d first part.

Can't we compare pural with singular?

I would like to debate your reasoning for answer choice E. Are you sure that this rule applies to prepositions too? I think not.

comments anyone?

I say B. Quite possibly E. The rest either compare a person to a novel or a singular w/ a plural.

Why not C?



I feel that B makes a wrong comparison. Well's oeuvre with the novel by Williams.
C would send better if it read 'Unlike those by Well's , the novel by ----

I will go for E here.

A. Unlike H. G. Wells, who wrote more than 100 books, and countless essays and articles, the novel written by Henry Williams in 1923 => wrong comparison

B. Unlike H. G. Wells’ oeuvre, with more than 100 books, and countless essays and articles, the novel written by Henry Williams in 1923 => i think wrong comparison ( work (oeuvre) -> novel )

C. Unlike those of H. G. Wells, who wrote more than 100, and countless essays and articles, the novel written by Henry Williams in 1923 => those what ?i think ambiguous

D. In comparison with H. G. Wells, who wrote more than 100 books, and countless essays and articles, the novel written by Henry Williams in 1923
=> wrong comparison

E. H. G. Wells wrote over 100 books and countless essays and articles, but Henry Williams wrote a novel in 1923 which => contrast not conveyed

well given the answer choices ....its between B & E and in this case i would like to go with B .....cause i think E is not effectively conveying the meaning !!

E. H. G. Wells wrote over 100 books and countless essays and articles, but Henry Williams wrote a novel in 1923 which
Contrast but still best. "in 1923" is modifying "wrote" and which refers to "novel".
Reconstruct it, In 1923 Henry Williams wrote a novel which
