A prolific architect, an appositive correctly modifies Julia in A. In no other choice, there is a suitable noun that can modify the Architect. Hence A is the answer

Took 15 seconds!

(A) Julia Morgan designed nearly 800 buildings in California, perhaps most notably William Randolph Hearst’s monumental estate at San Simeon - Correct: Starting phrase "A prolific architect" should modify "Julie Morgan".

(B) perhaps the most notable of the nearly 800 buildings in California designed by Julia Morgan was William Randolph Hearst’s monumental estate at San Simeon - Wrong: Modifier Issue

(C) of the nearly 800 buildings in California designed by Julia Morgan, perhaps the most notable was William Randolph Hearst’s monumental estate at San Simeon - Wrong: Modifier Issue

(D) nearly 800 buildings in California were designed by Julia Morgan, of which William Randolph Hearst’s monumental estate at San Simeon is perhaps the most notable - Wrong: Modifier Issue

(E) William Randolph Hearst’s monumental estate at San Simeon is perhaps the most notable of the nearly 800 buildings in California designed by Julia Morgan - Wrong: Modifier Issue

Dear Expert,

Would someone please clarify what part of speech/what type of modifier this phrase is "perhaps most notably William Randolph Hearst???s monumental estate at San Simeon"? Thanks!

If you know your Modifiers well by now, this question shouldn’t take you long.

You see that it begins with the phrase A prolific architect who worked from the turn… and you know that it should modify Julia Morgan, the subject.

With this simple rule, you can eliminate Options B, C, D, and E.

Option A is the best option.

Hope this helps!
