+1 A

I didn't understand the question at all, but I solved it using the SC principles.

A. Correct
B. Wrong: "since" (to indicate causality) is wrong in SC, ONLY in SC. "since" is valid in SC, if it refers to time.
C .Wrong: clauses cannot be located after "because of"
D. Wrong: "due to" means "caused by". It doesn't match in this sentence.
E. Wrong: Usually, a relative clause inside other relative clause is wrong.

I think I deserve kudos

If A is correct, I cannot find a verb. Can someone help me?

A block of multimedia that differs from a paragraph in a linear narrative in that the work is necessarily fragmented,each break of that must carry out its literary function independently.

that differs from a paragraph in a linear narrative in that the work is necessarily fragmented IMO it is a modifier

Same here as metallicafan

1. In that - Used to talk about some aspects

2. since - Can be either used as a Preposition/conjunction

3. because of - sed to talk about all aspects

4. due to - Can be repalced by " caused by "

Used the aforementioned relues to determine the answer (A)

A block of multimedia that differs from a paragraph in a linear narrative in that ...........

IMHO only a A block of multimedia differs from a Large Paragraph , so In that can be used...

Plz tell us other approach .

I am not sure that this question has been correctly transcribed from the original. The first part before the semicolon is just a noun and noun modifier with no verb. Probably if the 'that' is removed, A will make sense.

I believe that the SC above should read as follows:

Quote:
A block of multimedia text differs from a paragraph in a linear narrative in that the work is necessarily fragmented; each block of text must carry out its literary function independently.

a.) in that the
b.) since the
c.) because of the
d.) due to the
e.) that the

B: A block of multimedia text differs from a paragraph in a linear narrative since the work is necessarily fragmented.
Here, the conveyed meaning is that the portion in red CAUSES a block of multimedia text to differ from a paragraph in a linear narrative.
Not the intended meaning.
The intended meaning of the original sentence is that the portion in red is the WAY in which a block of multimedia text and a paragraph in a linear narrative differ.
Eliminate B.

A preposition may not be followed by a complete clause.
The object of a preposition must be a NOUN.
C: of the work is necessarily fragmented
D: to the work is necessarily fragmented
In each of these options, the preposition in blue is incorrectly followed by the clause in red.
Eliminate C and D.

E: a linear narrative that the work is necessarily fragmented
This meaning is nonsensical.
Eliminate E.

Note the following:
When since serves to connect two clauses and is intended to express a causal relationship, it should be preceded by a comma, as in the following OA from GMAC:
Prospecting for gold was a relatively easy task, since erosion put gold literally within reach of anybody with a pan or shovel.

B: A block of multimedia text differs from a paragraph in a linear narrative since the work is necessarily fragmented.
Here, since serves to connect the two clauses in red and is intended to express a causal relationship.
Since no comma precedes since, eliminate B.
