I agree. A should be the answer

Absolute Phrase is the term i think for the underlined portion of the sentence....though it appears as a run on sentence , its not. It gives us more information about the deed of emancipation.

"considered" (a common GMAT trap) should be immediately followed by the noun it intend to modify so B C E are out. D does not make sense. Only A stands

Easy one!

"setting free the more than 500 slaves who were legally considered his property" is a participial phrase modifying the subject Robert Carter III.



In 1791 Robert Carter III, one of the wealthiest plantation owners in Virginia, stunned his family, friends, and neighbors by filing a deed of emancipation, setting free the more than 500 slaves who were legally considered his property.

(A)setting free the more than 500 slaves who were legally considered

(B)setting free more than the 500 slaves legally considered as

(C)and set free more than 500 slaves, who were legally considered as

(D)and set free more than the 500 slaves who were legally considered
changes the meaning of the sentence. it means he also set other things/people free.

(E)and he set free the more than 500 slaves who were legally considered as

agree w/ bimmerhype:

boiled choices down to A and D. "Consider" should not have "as" after it.

D - tells us that the owner set free more than the 500 slaves he owned. Did he free his slaves and others that weren't his? No, that would change the meaning of the sentence.

A - he freed the (more than) 500 slaves who were considered his property.
